Presented here is a 2008 UEFA Euro Cup reproduction medal gifted to a staff member of the Spanish National Football Team. UEFA issued only 35 original gold winner's medals (made of pure gold) to Spain's players, coaches and top executives after winning the 2008 Euro Cup held in Austria and Switzerland. The Royal Spanish Football Federation (Real Federación Española de Fútbol; RFEF), the governing body for Spain's national soccer team, received permission to issue additional medals in gold-plated bronze and distribute to other Spanish assistants and officials involved with the 2008 Euro Cup. La Roja defeated Germany 1-0 in the Final match thanks to a goal from Fernando Torres to win their second Euro Cup, and first since the nation's inaugural appearance in 1964. David Villa won the Golden Boot as the tournament's top scorer with four goals, while midfielder Xavi was named Player of the Tournament. It was the beginning of a glorious run for Spain as they would win the 2010 FIFA World Cup and then repeat as Euro Cup champions in 2012.
