Four players scored three goals: Hakan Yakin (Switzerland), Semih Senturk (Turkey), Roman Pavlyuchenko (Russia) and Lukas Podolski (Germany).

177. Spain led the tournament in shots with 117 and in the final outshot Germany, 13-4. Seven of Spain's shots were on target compared to one from Germany.

3. Spain conceded just three goals - one in each of its Group D victories.

24 million. Spain's victory earns it $12 million in addition to the $12 million all 16 teams received as a participation fee.

10. After the loss to Spain, German captain Michael Ballack has 10 runner-up finishes in his career, including second-place finishes this year with his club, Chelsea, in the English Premier League and UEFA Champions League. Germany finished second to Brazil in the 2002 World Cup final, for which Ballack was suspended because of accumulated yellow cards. Also in 2002, he finished second with Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League.
