Spanish national football team coach Luis Aragones shows that a man with 70 years can be up-to-date, produtive and effective*.
Spain beat Russia, again, yesterday in the Euro 2008 championship semi-final in Vienna.
Spain showed patience and after the first-half where the match was leveled, never lost the control after to have gotten advantage by Xaví Hernández at 50′ (even without David Villa, the top scorer, has left injured). Two more goals by Daniel Güiza (73′) and David Silva (82′) sent Spain through to a UEFA EURO 2008™ final meeting with Germany as Luis Aragonés’s men proved too strong for Russia in Vienna.
Russia exceeded expectations by getting out of their group, and Andrei Arshavin made the difference, but in this match they couldn’t shine.
Now, Spanish fans are looking for repeat the party next Sunday
