We wept in the changing room: Buffon

Italy continue their 46-year wait for a second European title after goals from David Silva, Jordi Alba, Fernando Torres and Juan Mata gave Spain their third major title in a row. “In the changing room, almost all the players were sobbing,” Buffon said. “We thought we could beat the Spaniards in the final, but it all turned out to be a big illusion.”

Buffon wasn’t happy having conceded twice in the last ten minutes. “I just want to forget the last ten minutes of the match, erase it from my life. I worried we’d concede again.”
