Spain vs. Ireland
Minute Commentary
90' FT: SPAIN 4 IRELAND 0
Ireland are eliminated from Euro 2012 after being outplayed from start to finish by the world and European champions. Any hopes of one of the shock results of this or any other major tournament were crushed inside four minutes as some slack Ireland defending allowed Fernando Torres to collect the ball and drive a powerful shot into the roof of Shay Given's net with the Ireland goalkeeper deceived by the sheer ferocity of the strike. The second goal might not have come until four minutes into the second half, but there was never any doubt that it would arrive. Again Given will feel he should have done better, punching a shot from Xavi right at the feet of David Silva, who bided his time before slotting the neatest of shots into the corner. Torres made it three goals from Premier League players by grabbing his second of the night 20 minutes from time, producing a clinical finish after being put clean through following lax Ireland play in the centre of the pitch. The Chelsea striker made way for Cesc Fabregas near the end and there was still time for the substitute to net his second goal of the tournament with seven minutes remaining, courtesy of a crisp drive from a short corner after Ireland had left him unmarked. Spain top Group C above Croatia on goal difference. They certainly justified their tag as tournament favourites tonight, while Ireland must restore some pride against Italy in Poznan on Monday.
90' DOING THEIR COUNTRY PROUD
Ireland's fans have done themselves huge credit again tonight. They are truly wonderful supporters and you really feel for them.
89' INTO STOPPAGE TIME
There will be a minimum of three minutes of stoppage time. The end can't come soon enough.
85' IRELAND BOOKING
Sean St Ledger is cautioned for a foul tackle on David Silva.
84' MORE ON THAT GOAL
It's a wonderful goal from the former Arsenal midfielder, who collected a short corner and drilled a shot across Given into the far corner. The Ireland marking was again non-existent there.
83' GOAL: SPAIN 4 IRELAND 0
Cesc Fabregas scores a fourth for Spain just moments after Given had denied Santi Cazorla.
81' IRELAND SUBSTITUTION
The clubless Paul Green, formerly of Derby County, replaces Glenn Whelan.
80' SPAIN SUBSTITUTION
Santi Cazorla replaces Andres Iniesta.
79' OVER FROM XAVI
Spain win a free-kick 25 yards from goal, but Xavi's curler clears the post and crossbar by some margin.
77' IRELAND SUBSTITUTION
Praise the Lord! James McClean is on, with Damien Duff making way.
76' SPAIN BOOKING
Javi Martinez is cautioned for a foul on Glenn Whelan.
75' CASILLAS DENIES KEANE
Ireland are still plugging away and Keane, from inside the penalty area, produces a fine low angled drive which Casillas is forced to turn aside.
73' SPAIN SUBSTITUTION
Fernando Torres is replaced by Cesc Fabregas. No hat-trick for you, young man.
71' MORE ON THAT GOAL
Another Ireland giveaway is punished clinically. McGeady allowed himself to be robbed in the centre-circle and two passes later Torres was off to the races with Dunne trailing in his wake. The striker kept his composure to slide a shot wide of Given's left hand and just inside the post.
70' GOAL: SPAIN 3 IRELAND 0
Fernando Torres nets his second and Spain's third.
68' CROSS CAUSES CONFUSION
Confusion reigns in the Spain defence as McGeady produces his best piece of work of the night to get in a cross from the left. Ramos takes charge and heads away with Casillas looking vulnerable.
67' PLENTY OF TALENT IN RESERVE
You know you have a good side when Chelsea's Juan Mata can't even get a look-in as a substitute.
66' SPAIN SUBSTITUTION
Xabi Alonso is replaced by Javi Martinez.
65' HALF-CHANCE FOR ANDREWS
A mis-kick by Alvaro Arbeloa gives Ireland a sniff of a chance, but Andrews cannot find the space for a shot after being found by McGeady.
63' BUSQUETS BLASTS WIDE
Torres sees a back-heel blocked by Sean St Ledger at a Spain corner and Busquets shoots wide from 14 yards. The Barca man will feel he should have done better there.
61' NEVER SATISFIED
Spain need one more goal to go above Croatia in the Group C table, which could be crucial if we come down to tie-breakers to see which sides progress to the last eight.
60' ANDREWS SOLDIERS ON
Keith Andrews, who has been Ireland's best player tonight, gets treatment before coming back on the pitch.
58' LINESMAN TO THE RESCUE
Iniesta threads a pass between full-back and centre-back for Torres, who is clean through but marginally offside. There is much relief in the Ireland camp as the flag goes up.
55' WONDER SAVE FROM GIVEN
That's what Shay Given is capable of. The Ireland goalkeeper flings himself to his right to keep out a rasping shot from Xavi. That really was a superb save.
54' SPAIN BOOKING
Xabi Alonso is harshly cautioned for a foul on Jon Walters.
52' THIS COULD GET MESSY
Spain break quickly and have men over, but a poor ball from Torres sees the move halted in its tracks.
50' MORE ON THAT GOAL
Given punched a tame shot from Iniesta right to the feet of Silva, who waited and waited before threading a left-foot shot between two defenders and into the corner. Class finish, poor goalkeeping. Where have we heard that before?
49' GOAL: SPAIN 2 IRELAND 0
David Silva makes it 2-0 to Spain. Game over.
48' BEATEN AWAY BY GIVEN
Ireland give the ball away cheaply again. Xavi finds Arbeloa on the overlap and his angled shot is beaten away by Given.
48' GET McCLEAN ON
Giovanni Trapattoni is going to go down in my estimation if he does not give young James McClean a run early in this second half. Aiden McGeady needs to make way and the sooner the better in my opinion.
47' IRELAND SUBSTITUTION
Jonathan Walters has replaced Simon Cox at the break. That's a good move, though he should have started.
46' HERE WE GO AGAIN
Spain get the second half under way.
45' HT: SPAIN 1 IRELAND 0
Spain lead at the break and once more Ireland have only themselves to blame for being behind. Some lacklustre defending and some very average goalkeeping enabled the reigning champions to grab the initiative after only four minutes, with Fernando Torres beating Shay Given with a drive the Aston Villa goalkeeper will feel he could have stopped on a good day. Giovanni Trapattoni's side had started promisingly, with Simon Cox forcing Iker Casillas into a smart save with only a minute on the clock. After that, though, it has been total domination from the men in red, with Ireland, as expected, enduring long periods without the ball. The one positive that can be taken from the first 45 minutes of football is that it is only 1-0. While the scoreline remains as it is, there is always hope, however slim.
45' GIVEN DENIES INIESTA
A curling strike from Iniesta is tipped over by Given. That's half-time.
45' IRELAND BOOKING
Glenn Whelan is booked for tripping David Silva to halt a Spain fast break.
45' STILL HANGING ON
Arbeloa sees his deflected shot blocked by Given, before St Ledger gets in the way of a goalbound strike from Xavi. Had that gone in it would have been game over. Alonso then side-foots wide from 20 yards.
43' PUSHING FOR ANOTHER
Xavi forces Given into a diving save to his left after the Spanish torment Ireland with more delightful football on the edge of their box.
41' WHAT WAS TORRES THINKING?
That's curious from Torres. He had a chance to catch Shay Given off his line with a first-time chip after being found by Iniesta but instead picked out a square ball to Arbeloa and the chance was wasted gone. He's still lacking in confidence, the Chelsea man, obviously.
36' IRELAND BOOKING
A poor challenge from Robbie Keane on Andres Iniesta earns the Ireland captain a booking.
35' WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON, REF?
Torres almost gets in again down the inside-right channel but the ball just gets away from him before a farcical moment when the referee body-checks Keith Andrews to set up another Spain attack.
33' LOOKING FOR MORE
Spain need as many goals as they can manage tonight, because it could all boil down to goal difference should Ireland lose against Italy and the world champions draw with Croatia in their final games.
31' TRAP A FRUSTRATED FIGURE
Giovanni Trapattoni is deep inside his dugout sheltering from the pouring rain, but you can still pick out the scowl on the Ireland manager's face.
29' POOR AGAIN FROM McGEADY
Aiden McGeady is back on, but Ireland fans will wish he wasn't after that giveaway. After collecting the ball in space the winger allows himself to be closed down by two Spain defenders before picking out a third with a dreadful cross.
26' McGEADY INJURED
Aiden McGeady's left knee is cut and he is getting treated on the sidelines. Xabi Alonso's 25-yard drive is deflected over the crossbar. Pique heads wide from the resulting corner with Ireland's marking non-existent.
23' STINGING SHOT FROM INIESTA
A back-heel from Iniesta picks out Silva inside the Ireland area, but the Manchester City man dithers on the ball and Ireland clear, momentarily. Soon after, Given paws away a long-range drive from Iniesta.
21' TRIVIA ANSWER
Earlier we asked you who was the last player not on the Barcelona playing staff to score for Spain in a major tournament before tonight. It was Fernando Torres, then of Liverpool, who netted the winner in the Euro 2008 final.
19' ALL FOR ONE
It's quite apt we are in Gdansk tonight, the birthplace of the trade union movement in Poland. They may not have Lech Walesa, but if there's one thing Ireland do need tonight it's solidarity. Oh, and a bit of belief. And come to think of it, two goals would be quite handy, too.
17' GIVEN SAVES AGAIN
Gerard Pique finds himself well forward and tries a 25-yarder which again is right at Given and gives the Ireland goalkeeper no concerns.
16' CHASING SHADOWS
It's as if Spain have got 15 players on the pitch here. Ireland simply cannot get near them. They are being passed to death and there is always a free man for the man with the ball to find.
15' ST LEDGER'S TIMELY TACKLE
A delightful lofted ball from Alonso finds Xavi in an advanced position, but Sean St Ledger makes a timely intervention to save the day.
14' BARCELONA BIAS
That Torres strike was special for a number of reasons. The last nine goals before it scored by Spain at a major tournament had all been netted by Barcelona players. So who was the last non-Barca player to net for the Spanish, and who was he playing for? Answer in a couple of minutes.
13' OFFSIDE FLAG SAVES IRELAND
A lovely reverse ball from Silva looks to have put Torres through again, but the flag is up for offside.
12' LUCKY AIDEN
It's a bit of a surprise that Aiden McGeady has been picked again for Ireland. According to official UEFA statistics he attempted only 19 passes in the match with Croatia, completing just ten of them. Surely the all-action James McClean would have been a better bet for a side needing to shake things up?
11' PROMISING OPENING WASTED
Dunne's excellent diagonal ball picks out Keane, but eventually Aiden McGeady runs the ball out of play.
9' PILING ON THE PRESSURE
It's almost a second for Spain. Arbeloa heads the ball back into the danger area and a first-time shot from Torres whistles past the near post. At the other end, Keith Andrews sees his shot deflected over.
7' GIVEN GETS BEHIND THAT ONE
Ireland are all over the place here. Aiden McGeady gives the ball away, but a shot from David Silva from outside the box is easy for Given to gather.
6' ITALY DRAW AGAIN
Earlier this afternoon Italy drew with Croatia in Poznan. Croatia currently top Group C at the moment with four points, Italy have two, Spain one and Ireland have yet to get off the mark. If Croatia were to take something off Spain in the final match, then a win for Ireland tonight and a draw against Italy would see them through. Easy! Well, perhaps not quite so easy now.
5' MORE ON THAT GOAL
It's a cracking finish from the Chelsea man. Richard Dunne made a fantastic challenge to dispossess Silva, but took an age to get to his feet. Torres pounced on the loose ball and drilled a shot through the arms of the culpable Given and into the roof of the net. A good striker's goal but a disaster for Ireland.
4' GOAL: SPAIN 1 IRELAND 0
Fernando Torres scores for Spain.
3' LEAVING HIS CALLING CARD
A crunching tackle by Keith Andrews on Sergio Busquets leaves the Spain man on the floor. That was a really heavy but fair challenge which the Irishman felt as well.
2' EARLY IRELAND SHOT
A good early sign for Ireland, as Cox forces Casillas into a diving save to his right with a well-struck 20-yard shot.
1' HERE WE GO
Ireland kick off, attacking the goal to our right.
0' TONIGHT'S STARTING LINE-UPS
Spain: Iker Casillas; Alvaro Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba; Sergio Busquets, Xabi Alonso; Andres Iniesta, Xavi, David Silva; Fernando Torres. Ireland: Shay Given; John O'Shea, Sean St. Ledger, Richard Dunne, Stephen Ward; Aiden McGeady, Glenn Whelan, Keith Andrews, Damien Duff; Robbie Keane, Simon Cox.
0' TORRES GETS THE START
Fernando Torres will start for Spain in place of Cesc Fabregas, who has been bothered by a thigh injury. This is the only change made by Vicente del Bosque to the side that drew with Italy. Ireland make just the one change as well, with Simon Cox coming in for Kevin Doyle.
0' PREVIEW
Ireland could be the first side to be eliminated from Euro 2012 if they fail to take anything from tonight's Group C game with Spain in Gdansk. True, they could have picked easier opponents than the reigning World Cup winners and European champions, but the men from the Emerald Isle have got used to overcoming the odds over the years. There wouldn't be a national outcry if Giovanni Trapattoni's side fail to qualify for the last eight, that was always going to be a tall order from a group containing Spain and Italy. But they at least need to put things right after that dismal performance against Croatia in their opening match when pretty much everything that could go wrong duly did. Ireland's defending at times in that 3-1 reverse would not have been out of place in your local Sunday League and it was unforgivable that they should concede goals at the start of both halves and just before the interval. If nothing else tonight, the best fans in the tournament expect a performance from their side, full of passion, heart and commitment. If they can do the simple things right as well, the men in green just might have an outside chance of pulling off an upset. Tonight's match kicks off at 1945BST (1845GMT), so join us around 30 minutes beforehand when we should have the confirmed team news, followed by a live match commentary.
0' PLAYERS TO WATCH
It's easy to talk about impact players for Ireland having to come to the party, but let's face it, Trappatoni's side have a mountain to climb and there are going to be long periods where they see little of the ball. What they actually have to do is knuckle down to getting the basics right, concentrating for 90 minutes and doing the jobs they are being tasked with individually to the best of their ability. World-class displays from Shay Given are perhaps not as frequent as they used to be, but if he has one more performance in his locker then Thursday night would be a good time to produce it. The Aston Villa man was decidedly below par (and a little unlucky) in the opening defeat by Croatia and will be anxious to rectify that. Another player who has to do better is Stephen Ward. We know the Wolves man isn't really a left-back and how it showed on Sunday night. Here is someone else who needs to restore his reputation with a faultless showing. Xavi Hernandez and Sergio Busquets both completed 95 passes against Italy, well over double the number of Glenn Whelan, Ireland's pass master against Croatia with 41.
0' TOURNAMENT RECORD
This is only Ireland's second appearance at the European Championship finals and they entered the tournament hoping to reach the knockout phase for the first time in their history, a dream that now looks unlikely. Spain are looking to be European champions for a third time, having triumphed on home soil in 1964 and again four years ago in Vienna.
0' EARLY TEAM NEWS
Cesc Fabregas is doubtful for Spain with a thigh injury. The Barcelona midfielder played in an unfamiliar advanced role against Italy and if unfit his place is likely to go to a recognised striker in Fernando Torres or Fernando Llorente. Ireland defender Richard Dunne missed training on Monday with blisters, but do you really think that is going to force the big centre-back to the sidelines? There have been suggestions that Jon Walters will be preferred to Kevin Doyle and the big news coming from the Ireland camp on Thursday morning was that Trapattoni could abandon the 4-4-2 system he has favoured throughout his career and plump for a five-man midfield.
0' HEAD TO HEAD
There have been 24 previous encounters between the countries, with Spain winning 13 times, Ireland four and seven matches being drawn. There has been just one previous meeting in major finals, Spain triumphing 3-2 in a penalty shoot-out in Suwon in the round of 16 at the 2002 World Cup, a match that saw Robbie Keane cancel out an early Fernando Morientes strike with a last-minute penalty. Ireland have two wins in 14 attempts against the Spanish in all competitive matches, both by a 1-0 scoreline, and both coming in World Cup qualifiers in Dublin, in 1965 and 1989.
0' FORM GUIDE
Ireland had not been beaten in 14 games entering their opening match of the tournament. With games to come against Spain and Italy, we will be talking instead about a three-match winless run come the end of Euro 2012 if they do not raise their performance levels significantly. Spain have gone 15 competitive games without defeat, their last setback being a 1-0 loss to Switzerland in June 2010 at the World Cup. They have, however, tasted defeat four times in 14 friendly matches over that span.
0' MAN IN THE MIDDLE
Taking charge of tonight's game is Pedro Proenca from Portugal, who impressed in his calm handling of this year's Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Chelsea. Proenca, who has been on the FIFA international referees' list since 2003, is the last of the 12 officials selected for this tournament to take charge of a match. Every referee has decisions they wish they could reverse, and Proenca's came in 2009 when he awarded Porto a penalty in a big domestic clash with Benfica. Replays showed that Lisandro Lopez clearly dived and the Argentine striker was later suspended by the Portuguese FA.
