Spanish fans celebrate 2012 Euro victory on College St.
It wasn't the result that collectively hoped for in the restaurants and bars throughout Little Italy and Corso Italia, but Spain's Euro Cup victory yesterday still brought some revellers out to College — just a little further to the east. Congregating around Bathurst Street, as they did roughly two years ago when Spain won the World Cup, Spanish fans took to the street to celebrate the country's 4-0 defeat of Italy. The celebration wasn't quite as exuberant as last time — mercifully no streetcars were commandeered — but the site of the victory dance still must have stung for the Italian fans who were left to mope their way home. So close, but so far.
