Spanish striker Fernando Torres said he is already dreaming of further glory for the defending champions at Euro 2012.
"I think this is the moment to make history," said Torres, already twice on target so far to put Spain in command of Group C.
"If the team play the level they are capable of then we have the chance to turn in a good tournament.
"All I want to see is (skipper) Iker (Casillas) lifting the cup. That's what we've come for and that's the image I have in my mind's eye every day," said Torres, whose goal won Euro 2008.
Spain are hoping here to become the first side ever to win three straight major tournaments after back-to-back Euro 2008 and 2010 World Cup successes.
