It'd be understandable for Madrid's La Liga-winning players to want to take a break, sit back, relax and perhaps have a few alcoholic beverages along the way this summer. The energy-sapping season they've just had was worth it, but to win La Liga, knocking Barcelona off top-spot, and reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League must be draining - both in mind and in body. A refreshing, easy, summer break must have been the order of the day.
Enter Euro 2012. And no signs of tiredness. Just success, even more of it for those from the Bernabeu.
