After dominating football for a generation, it was looking a lot like Spain were set for a fallow period. And who could be surprised? Players as good as Xavi, Carles Puyol, Xabi Alonso, Andres Iniesta, David Villa, Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos do not come around often, never mind all at the same time.
But the truth remains that Spanish football, if played well is a very difficult style of football to beat, and as long as the La Roja has quality players to impose the style, the are a problem to anyone. Without Pedri, their best player and chief schemer, they passed around Italy both before and after Bonucci was sent off and in Gavi seem to have nurtured yet another player with both talent and temperament.
It may be that, in the final France or Belgium may have too much power and brilliance for them, but they will have to the ball first.
With the way the Spaniard Played last night coupled with their Semi Final efforts at the Euro 2020 and their Tokyo 2020 silver medal performance, can one comfortably say the future looks bright for the Spanish national team? Only time will tell.
