Casillas And Capdevila Delighted After Russian Win

Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas cannot believe La Furia Roja are in the final of the European Championship after their 3-0 win over Russia.
Luis Aragones’ side beat Guus Hiddink’s brave team in the semi-final on Thursday night to set up a mouth watering final clash on Sunday with Germany.

Casillas has been one of Spain’s best players and he is proving his worth on the international stage. The Real Madrid stopper cannot believe his team have come so far.

“To be honest, I cannot believe it,” Casillas told Marca.

“I am so happy with the result and so is everyone else in the dressing room.

“Now we have to take full advantage and we have made the country so proud of Spanish football.”

Villarreal’s Joan Capdevila also had a few words on La Seleccion’s triumph but he is being a little more modest.

“We are in the final as a result of all the hard work that we put into it,” said the stopper.

“I hope all goes well against Germany and we have to try and take advantage on Sunday.

“We are all delighted but we need to be cautious and keep our feet on the ground.”

Spain and Germany were favourites to win the tournament at the start on June 7 and now it will be down to whichever team wants it the most on Sunday.

Spain have reached a major final for the first time in 24 years and they will be hoping to go on and conquer Europe this weekend.
