Once revered as the most attractive side in world football, there are increasingly loud voices of dissent claiming Spain are - well, just a little bit boring.

For all their tiki-taka passing, say the critics, where is the genuine excitement? Vicente Del Bosque's side tested Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio just one in the first 90 minutes last night.

Spain have scored one goal or fewer in three of their five Euro 2012 games, and they won the 2010 World Cup thanks to four consecutive 1-0 wins.

Del Bosque has struggled to find the right formula up front - last night Alvaro Negredo disappointed up front, and Spain finished with Cesc Fabregas up front as a 'false nine'.

So today's poll question is simply: Are Spain boring?
