I've just checked who won Euro 2008 and I see it's Spain.
According to the article:
"Spain immediately looked forward to the 2010 World Cup after becoming European Champions for the first time in 44 years." Euro 2008 - Spain set sights on World Cup
Check this out: 4+4 = 8.
No wonder Spain won the Euro because they wanted to get in on the number 8 act.
Well done, Spain!
I love number 8, don't you?
