COMPETITION SYSTEM

· 51 national squads enter a Qualifying Stage, in which they are divided in 9 groups (six of them with 6 teams each and three with 5) playing a round robin. The host nations (Poland and Ukraine) are bye from this round. The group winners and the best runner-up qualify for the Final Stage. The remaining eight runners-up are paired in a two-legged Qualification Playoff in order to decide the last four berths.

· The 16 participants in the Final Stage are divided in 4 groups of 4 teams each. The group winners and runners-up of each of these groups advance to 1/4 Finals, played as an X-pairing. Winners move to the Semifinals, and the two surviving teams after this round qualify for the Final.

FINAL

STADIUM: NSK Olympyjskyj (Kyïv)

DATE: 1-07-2012 (21:45 h)

ATTENDANCE: 63.170

REFEREE: Pedro Proença (POR)

GOALS: 1-0 (Silva 14’); 2-0 (Jordi Alba 41’); 3-0 (Torres 84’); 4-0 (Mata 88’)

BOOKED: Piqué (25’) / Barzagli (45’)

[Incidents: In minute 61, Motta suffered a hamstring injury and had to leave the game. As he was Italy’s last substitution, Cesare Prandelli’s side had to play the last 28 minutes wth only ten men. Fernando Torres won the Golden Boot trophy thanks to his assist to Mata in the last Spanish goal (the Chelsea player tied at three goals and one assist with Mario Gómez, but had less playing time than the German attacker).]
