Spain looking to dominate the Olympics

After last Sunday Spain won the Euro 2012, 3 players of that squad were selected to represent Spain in the Olympics, who are Juan Mata, Jordi Alba and Javi Martinez. Another 2 stars who were selected in the Spanish squad are David de Gea and Oriol Romeu. The 3 players who are over 23 for Spain are Juan Mata, Javi Martinez and Adrian Lopez, although all 3 are still under the 25 years old. Spain broke a record last Sunday but not only retaining the European crown, but also by winning 3 tournaments in a row. Mata and Martinez and Alba were seen celebrating in Spain after the team paraded with the trophy in the streets. However the coach Luis Milla said that he does not expect Spain to perform as well Spain did, but he is confident that they have a chance. He said that although they play and share  similar philosophy, the pressure is different and so are the players.
