I really love this card because I'm a huge football fan and I enjoyed pretty much every match of the Euro 2012 plus the team I was rooting for (Spain) won and one of my favorite players (David Silva) scored in the final! So it was great to receive an original card from this tournament!
The 2012 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly referred to as Euro 2012, was the 14th European Championship for national football teams organised by UEFA. The final tournament was hosted for the first time by Poland and Ukraine, between 8 June and 1 July 2012. Euro 2012 set the record for both the highest aggregate attendance (1,440,896) and the highest average attendance per game (46,481) under the 16-team format (since 1996).
The final tournament featured 16 nations (the last European Championship to do so, from Euro 2016 onward, there will be 24 finalists). The tournament was played across eight venues, four in each host country.
The tournament opened with a 1-1 draw between Poland and Greece at the National Stadium in Warsaw on 8 June 2012. The final match took place on 1 July 2012 at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, where Spain defended their title with a 4–0 win over Italy. Spain became the first team to win two consecutive European Championships, and the first international team to win three straight major tournament titles (Euro 2008, World cup 2010 and Euro 2012).
