New Barcelona signing Jordi Alba is thrilled with his role in Spain's Euros triumph.

The magnitude of their achievement was not lost on Alba either.

"My team-mates made history before and now I am doing so together with them in my first European Championship," said the flying full-back.

"I am struggling to believe it, but it seems to be sinking in little by little.

"I told my friends and family I was going to score tonight and that's the way it turned out."
