A month's worth of outstanding soccer in Poland and Ukraine will be capped today by the European Championship final between defending champion Spain and rejuvenated Italy (2:45pm, ESPN/ESPN3.com).
The two powers meet in a rematch of a group stage match that finished in a 1-1 draw. Plenty has changed since that opening match. Italy has watched Mario Balotelli emerge as a dangerous threat while Spain has found a new gear in imposing their dominant possession game.
There will be plenty of can't-miss match-ups, from Xavi vs. Daniele De Rossi, to Andrea Pirlo vs. the Spanish midfield tandem of Busquets and Xabi Alonso. Gerard Pique will also be looking to try and contain Balotelli, who will surely enter the final on a high after his two-goal virtuoso performance in Italy's 2-1 victory vs. Germany in the semifinals.
