What do you mean? How were they on par?The Euro means nothing -_- If it does, then Italy should be quite as good as Spain for this world cup (since they were on par)
Spain defeated Germany in the final, and as we have have witnessed, Germany is a force to be reckoned with.
Sure this was 2 years ago, i'm just saying that with Spain's record throughout the past few years, more was expected of them. So it was a total shock that they lost. Trying to say Spain is a crap team is just plain foolish.
