Spain was crowned champion of the UEFA Nations League and achieved the European title it was missing

After a very even final that was decided by penalties, Spain defeated Croatia and won the UEFA Nations League for the first time in its history.

In this way, they won the continental title they were missing, the most modern one, since this was its third edition. La Roja won the trophy that was held by France. The first champion was Portugal.

Together with Germany, the Spanish team has won the most European Cups, with three (1964, 2008, and 2012). Now, it has followed in the footsteps of the French and Portuguese, who have also won the two continental senior titles.

Spain also has 5 U21, 11 U19, and 9 U17 European crowns. It is the country with the most UEFA titles.

The last official celebration of La Roja was at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa since it did not get past the round of 16 in the last three World Cups, and at Euro 2020 it was eliminated in the semis.
