The Spain vs France quarter final was a game many looked forward to, but let’s be honest, it dissappointed. Sure, Spain were brilliant in their passing and keeping the ball, but it got very boring very quickly. There seemed to be no real purpose to it other then tiring out the French players and trying to put them to sleep. It worked, with all their potential France a class below the Spanish. Two goals by Xabi Alonso settled this game. France go home and Spain play their neighbors Portugal in the semi final.
