CHALLENGE: Can Spain replicate their historic success at Euro 2024 using the tactics that brought them glory from 2007 to 2012? 

WHY? These were the golden years for Spanish football. The team dominated the international stage with their iconic tiki-taka style of play, characterized by quick passing, fluid movement, and relentless possession. It was a joy to watch and a nightmare for their opponents. By emulating this tactic, Spain not only mesmerized the world but also bagged major trophies, including the Euro 2008/2012 and the 2010 World Cup.

TACTIC: The core of their strategy revolved around controlling the game through precise passing and maintaining possession. Players like Xavi, Iniesta, and Xabi Alonso orchestrated the midfield, dictating the tempo of the game and creating scoring opportunities with their intricate passing triangles. The defense was solid, and the attack was lethal, making Spain a formidable force on the field.
