Guardiola tips Spain to win

Pep Guardiola expects Spain to adopt a ‘False 9’ system in tonight’s Euro 2012 Final against Italy. “I think Spain will win and make history.”

The reigning World and European Champions could become the first team ever to win three major titles in a row.

“I think Spain will win and make history, as no nation has ever won three Finals in six years,” said the former Barcelona Coach.

Cesc Fabregas is expected to start in a no-striker system, leaving Fernando Torres on the bench.

“Playing with or without a centre-forward doesn’t make a big difference to the way Spain play. The team is in good hands and Vicente Del Bosque is the best possible Coach for this group.

“There are many players capable of scoring, regardless of whether there is a centre-forward on the field.”
