Germany 0 – 1 Spain – victors in Euro 2008

Fernando Torres of Spain and Liverpool got the winning goal in the 33rd minute.

For my wife and me, it was a lovely tournament to watch. Every match in High Definition TV via ESPN and their junior partners at ABC. Great sports photography and really capable announcers.

The “regulars” in American soccer telecasts – with the exception of HDNet, of course – Setanta Sports and Fox Soccer Channel, GOL-TV had better look to their laurels and beg, borrow or steal the geedus to get themselves up to the HDTV standard.

We saw 16 teams play better matches overall than any tourney I can remember. They battled it out in thrilling fashion for most of the matches.

The best of the summer!
