Many Ukrainian supporters had adopted a team for the Euro 2012 final in their capital Kiev.

Those who chose to back Italy were not as desolate as the Italians, but that is probably because Ukraine and co-hosts Poland have been praised for their organisation of the tournament.

“Yes I supported Italian team,” said one Ukrainian in Italian colours. “It is a pity of course but I hope Italy will play better in the World Cup finals.”

Another added: “I am proud of Ukraine because we organised Euro 2012 very well.”

The President of UEFA, Michel Platini said that
the Polish and Ukrainian people have showed their enthusiasm, and they have set a very high bar for the future which will be difficult to match. The tournament is leaving a very significant legacy in the two countries, he said.

Our correspondent in Kiev, Denys Kulyk said:
“The final lived up to the tournament’s slogan of “Creating history together.”

Spain defeated Italy in the final, won their third title in a row and imposed their dominance in the world of football.”
