Spain were superb. I usually can't stand their playing style, but tonight? Irresistible.

Spain really started the game like it mattered to them, put Italy on the back foot and got their early goal. It would have taken a huge effort by the Italians to overturn them, and I think it was a done deal when Jordi Alba's second went in. Second half was a bit of a battle with little football happening til the end. Didn't realise Italy were down to 10 men when their third sub was injured. Says much for them that they remained competitive until the end.

As for the sweep, both Jim and Chris made it out for the final. Jim took it on the chin and, once the prizes were handed out, we all got a bit drunk. So, a successful night.

On as a side note as sweep administrator, while it's very convenient for me and while it makes the final into a bit more of an event to have my Glasgow mates drawing the teams that end up in the final, again, it still looks a bit dodgy (honestly, though, at one point I was convinced it was going to be Roy and Des in the final). I just hope to god it doesn't happen again next time, otherwise I'll be being interviewed by Mr Leveson.

Thanks all for playing.

...or at least mix it up a bit so I get to win next time.

It was mostly fun, though. Watching Italy being taken apart wasn't my favourite bit of the evening, it must be said.

Thanks to everyone who took part. My daughter's already claimed my winnings - she's loved following Italy too and now I've got to buy her a ticket for the next Scotland game. I suspect that might end her new-found interest in football.

Thanks, Neil, for arranging the sweep. Portugal did well in hindsight!

Yep, thanks for taking the trouble to do a sweepstake again :)

Thank God it's over. I've actually managed to get some writing done!

Perhaps we should do a Wimbledon Sweepstake then next year.
