Spanish pray for Euro 2012 victory

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Spanish churchgoers prayed on Sunday for the victory of their national soccer team in the Euro 2012 final against Italy. One of Europe's most Catholic countries, many Spanish residents go to the church on Sunday morning. The Spanish team will will seek to make history tonight by winning a unique treble of three major tournaments in a row. Outside Madrid's church 'Jesus de Medinaceli' street vendors selling religious figurines, added Spanish flags and red 'La Roja' t-shirts to their usual display, hoping the feeling of euphoria would help to boost sales. Since losing to Switzerland in their first match of the 2010 World Cup, coach Vicente Del Bosque's keep-ball specialists have won 17 out of 19 competitive matches and another scalp would draw them level with Germany's record of three Euro triumphs. Spain's exciting free-flowing brand of football displayed in their march to the Euro 2008 and 2010 World Cup titles has not been of the same high quality during this tournament while challengers Italy have surprisingly been more adventurous.
