Andy Roxburgh, the former Scotland coach who is head of UEFAs Technical Committee, said that Spains superior technical ability at the June 7-29 championship had earned the title for Luis Aragones team. "We have chosen Xavi because he epitomizes the Spanish style of play. He was extremely influential in the whole possession, passing and penetrating kind of game that Spain played," Roxburgh said Monday. Roxburgh explained that the nine-man technical committee, which also included former national team coaches such as Gerard Houllier and Roy Hodgson, did not include players from teams who were eliminated in group play, such as France.
