Spain inside the legend! Sixth consecutive time Female European Champion

118

Spain is confirmed on the European throne for the sixth consecutive time, totally seventh, an absolute record confirmed on the women’s tournament, third in European history as European titles won consecutively. First The “great” men’s Spain, winner for 7 consecutive times from 2000 to 2012, and far away only one title and the unbeatable England male 12 times European champion from 1926 to 1939. A final never questioned by the Spanish girls, after that 1-1 draw 48 hours before that seemed to have shaken the “Roja”. Immediately in the net Florenza and Puigdueta in the first three minutes that split the match in two and smooth out the victory, widened on 4-0 with Roces and Piquero. In the second half, Portugal changed its attitude and the match was progressively more complicated for Spain. In the ascent, Sousa and Batista halved the gap but still Sara Roces, elected MVP of the European Championship and the goalkeeper Laura Vicente, safely brings forward her team. In the final Sofia scores 5-3 and Teixeira misses a direct shot that could also reopen the entire final. 
In the final 3-4 place, Italy dominated France 4-1, thanks to an excellent start with two goals by Lapolla and Maniero. In the second half Italy controlled the race and Galeassi scored again. 3 minutes from the end the strong captain Daribo scores her last goal at a European.
