    Spain opens up their defense of their Euro 2008 Championship Trophy against Liechtenstein in a Group I match on 3 Sept in Vaduz. The match KO is 2045 hours. Vicente Del Bosque announced the following players for call up for this match:

    GOAL KEEPERS: Casillas, Valdés, Reina
    DEFENDERS: Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos, Puyol, Piqué, Marchena, Capdevila
    MIDFIELDERS: Xabi Alonso, Busquets, Xavi, Cazorla, Cesc, Iniesta
    FORWARDS: Pedro, Jesús Navas, Villa, Silva, Llorente, Fernando Torres

    I plan on keeping the same thread title for the pre, PBP and post match comments.

    Halftime

    Liechtenstein 0-2 Spain
    0-1 : Torres 18'
    0-2 : Villa 26'


    RFEF confirms that Villa now has 43 international goals which puts him just one behind Raúl as his country's all-time leading scorer. (Many outlets believed and reported that Villa had scored number 44.)

    51st minute - WTH! Casillas slid way outside the box to clear that one. Spain asleep at the wheel for a second.

    53rd minute - GOAL! Torres near post. Maybe Roy was wrong, maybe exactly what Torres needed was to play.
