Spain captain Iker Casillas has vowed to get rid of the boring tag, often been associated with them during the ongoing Euro Cup, by giving fans something to enjoy in the final against Italy on Sunday in Kiev.

The reigning European and world champions squeezed past Portugal in the semifinal on penalties.

The Spaniards' ability to retain possession and pass their opponents off the park had certainly made them a difficult opponent to beat, but it has hardly made for thrilling viewing.

But Casillas is committed to change that notion. He said they didn't care whom they play against in the finals.

"This team have come together through a lot of hard work and faced criticism. What we want is to now give people something to enjoy and from now until Sunday they will have that," The Daily Express quoted Casillas, as saying.

 

"I don't care who we play in the final - the important thing is that Spain are there," he added.

The Real Madrid star admitted Spain rode their luck against Portugal, but is just hoping it lasts until the final.

"In the end, we were lucky because penalty shoot-outs are actually about luck. We were rewarded after 120 minutes of suffering," Casillas said.

"We'll definitely remember this moment for when we no longer get the luck," he added.
