Italy were defeated in the final of the euro cup by Spain with a big margin of four goals. In the group stage match Italy had drawn 1-1 with the same team.

Pirlo had a good tournament with three man of the matches in first four matches of the tournament but he fails to show his class against the strong Spain side in the finals. Pirlo believes only Spanish are better then his side in the present situation and he also believes present coach Prandelli will lead the team till the world cup 2014.

Talking with Gazzetta dello Sport Pirlo said.” ”Perhaps Spain are the only side we are not yet able to match in terms of circulation of the ball, This was a great tournament until the final, where we were not up to standard.”

Pirlo added.” My role in the tournament? I do not want to talk about that. When we lose, the entire team loses. There is no point in talking about this player or that player.”

Talking about the coach Pirlo said.” It is only fair that he continues I am happy that he will stay. His work is there to see.”
