UEFA Euro 2008 Final – Germany 0-1 Spain

Euro 2008 LogoLiverpool striker Fernando Torres was Spain’s goal hero, striking after 33 minutes when he cleverly lifted Xavi’s pass over Jens Lehmann.

Spain dominated the final throughout, with Torres heading against the post and Marcos Senna within inches of adding a second after 80 minutes.

Michael Ballack came close for Germany, shooting narrowly wide after the break.

UEFA Euro 2008 Match Schedule and Scoresheet (Excel Spreadsheet) [Updated]

Euro 2008 LogoThe UEFA EURO 2008 starts on 7th June 2008 (tomorrow) and is going to be the biggest football event this year.

I tried looking on the official UEFA Euro 2008 website and could not find a Excel match schedule and scoresheet like the one from the World Cup 2006 website. So I have found you an unofficial Excel spreadsheet which you can use as a match schedule and scoresheet for the UEFA Euro 2008. All the dates and times should be correct when you adjust them for your time zone.

This template is equipped with formulae that will automatically calculate the group standings of each team, based on Euro 2008 match regulations. When all group matches have been played, the template will automatically put each group winner and runner up in the template and you just simply put the score in the correct score cells. The formula will continue to work until the champion is revealed.

Real Madrid Win 30th Title in Heart Stopping Finale

Real Madrid ended their four-year trophy drought when they won the league title for the 30th time after a dramatic 3-1 comeback victory over Real Mallorca at the Bernabeu last night.

Substitute Jose Antonio Reyes was Real’s hero, equalising a minute after coming on in the second half and putting the icing on the cake with a spectacular third seven minutes from time.

The nine-times European champions topped the final standings by virtue of a better head-to-head record against arch-rivals Barcelona, whose 5-1 victory at already relegated Gimnastic Tarragona was to no avail.

The match marked the final appearances of David Beckham and Roberto Carlos, who signed off with a championship medal in front of 76,000 adoring fans at the Bernabeu.

Coincidently, the last time Real Madrid won La Liga was when Manchester United last (before this year) won the Premier League, in 2003.

Manchester United: 2006/07 Premiership Champions

Manchester United have clinched their first Premiership title since 2003 following Chelsea’s 1-1 draw against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

The result means United are seven points clear at the top of the table with just two games left to play.

Gilberto put Arsenal ahead from the penalty spot but Michael Essien equalised for 10-man Chelsea.

United’s success means boss Sir Alex Ferguson has won the Premiership nine times during his 21-year reign.

I really want R. Madrid to beat Arsenal. My cousin always wanted Arsenal to play them, but they never have. Now is the chance for either team to prove victorious over the other. Man Utd have played R. Madrid and lost.
