Spain Vs. Ireland, Euro 2012: Halftime Score 1-0 To Defending Champs

Here is an approximate summary of what's happened so far this game.

Three minutes in: Fernando Torres scores to give Spain a 1-0 lead! Hurray!

Rest of the minutes in: Uh-oh. Spain are now defending a 1-0 lead. We know what that means: Pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Ok, maybe that's a little bit unfair. There were some shots and such. Sometimes (but not very often) Ireland have the ball. But Spain have really made a mess of things at times, overcomplicating things in the final third. They should be two or three up by now, and thanks to their complete failure to make their utter, utter dominance count, they're not. Could Ireland snatch this? Probably not, no, but this is probably going to be far closer than it has any right to be.
