Are Spain better than Pele's Brazil?

Are Spain better than Pele's Brazil? (bbc)


Spain thrashed Italy 4-0 in the final of Euro 2012 in Kiev on Sunday to win their third major tournament in a row.

Vicente del Bosque led his side to an emphatic victory in Ukraine to become the first coach to win a World Cup, a European Championship and a Champions League title.

Spain have now won the last two European Championships and the last World Cup in South Africa.

I was there and saw him in person. I think he didn't particularly play good in that game and was tired or something and it was toward the end of this career, but he was the one and only Pele none the less.
