    Italy played wide and face-to-face against Spain, which also happened to score early.

    No that Spanish side was broken. It was truly a dark age in football history. It was around the time when tikitaka started to become mainstream and Spain thought that their head was so big they decided to field 4 defenders, a GK and 6 midfielders to frick with everyone. 70% possession minimum, a bunch of square and back passes, 5 forward passes per game and maybe every one resulted in a goal.
    Of course, after the world cup it steadily went downhill for them, but for a while Spain games were just insufferable, similar to Barca around the time.

      I'm so glad we are over that 4-6-0 shit

      Fabregas played as a 9 for Spain at Euro 2012 and Confederations Cup 2013. He was amazing in that role, he was playing there for Barcelona too.

      To his credit he played there for the team/players available, it was known that he wanted to play deeper in midfield. He was expected to be a finisher t

      Can you really complain about them playing 4-6-0 when you look at the names on the team sheet? Which one of those do you really want to drop for Jesus Navas? It helped that they had fullbacks who could provide plenty of width as well.

        Yes, I can complain about tikitaka. It's an autist's attempt at applying an optimisation function on football, the consequence being that it becomes fricking boring.

    In Germany, everyone believed >we had massively KWABed ourselves in the semifinal against Italy, people blamed Jogi for completely shitting the bed tactically, like having absolutely no receipt against Pirlo all game. After the final, everyone here believed >we could have putten up a better show, but would have still lost, similar to 2008 and 2010

      It's literally a fact that Löw lost is the game vs Italy with his dogshit tactics and lineup. We would have lost to Spain most likely anyway but that game was on Löw alone.

    Balotelli’s career went from the peak of the semifinal to the humiliation of the final and never recovered. We buckbroke him.

      Unironically this. Between the assist for the "AGUEROOOOOOOOO" goal and more or less singlehandedly buck-breaking Germany, his career was truly starting to take off that summer. Then the final happened and he was never quite the same again. Even though I disliked him as a person, who knows how good he may have become in a different timeline.
