My Euro 2012 final prediction

200px-UEFA_Euro_2012_logo.jpgOne last game in Euro 2012 remains.

The final.

For starters, here’s a preview from ESPN and another (plus a prediction) from Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl. Also, be sure to make your pick in our European Soccer Challenge contest if you’ve been participating.

So here’s my pick:

Italy 2, Spain 0

Why? Well, it’s just a feel from what I’ve seen so far. I originally picked the Azzurri to flame out in the group stage, particularly due to all the drama back home. But the Italians have been the revelation of the tournament with more of an open, attacking style than we’re used to seeing. I’m also not buying with Spain has been doing with the 4-6-0 formation.

But then again, my predictions are a kiss of death.
