Xabi Alonso played his 102nd match with Spain in the final against Italy, catching up with Raul as Spain's fourth most-capped player. He is only topped by Xavi (114), Zubizarreta (126) and Iker Casillas (137). The midfielder earned his 100th cap in the quarterfinals clash with France, in which he scored the two goals that gave the team a ticket to the semis, becoming the third Madridista to net a brace in the history of the Euro after Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo.
