Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas urged his colleagues to continue to strive for more success after they made history by sweeping aside Italy 4-0 in the final of Euro 2012.
I think we have to keep winning and win more trophies.Iker Casillas
La Roja became the first team to win three consecutive major international tournaments, making it look easy against an Azzurri outfit who had accounted for both England and Germany.
However, Casillas clearly wants more, as he said: "Are we the best ever? I don't know. I think we have to keep winning and win more trophies."
Spain can make it four major trophies in a row at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, with Casillas and co 6.00 to do just that, while Italy are 23.00 and Germany are 7.00.
Meanwhile, coach Vicente Del Bosque hailed a 'great era for Spanish football' after watching his side show their true colours in Kiev.
"We're talking about a great generation of footballers," said Del Bosque. "This is a great era for Spanish football.
"To win three titles is almost impossible. Everything worked for us, it was an extraordinary performance against a difficult opponent.
"We played our own game. There were no real external influences - we were faithful to what we've done in recent years."
