Spain won its third straight major soccer title Sunday, routing Italy 4-0 in the European Championship final and making it look all too easy.
David Silva and Jordi Alba scored first-half goals, and substitutes Fernando Torres and Juan Mata added two more in the final minutes as the Spanish passing game worked its magic against the Italians at the Olympic Stadium.
