If the only way you call a game enjoyable is by seeing many goals I might as well stop talking to you about football and talk to you about cartoons cause really you have no clue.
Barcelona is club, which is a whole different story, and teams didn't quite exactly park the bus vs Spain 08 either so I don't know what thats all about.
Italy is never great, cause they are the ones that park the bus. Attacking football vs defensive football never go in the same category, traduction, you can't compare spain and italy.
Spain doesn't need to score 5 goals to win, they could probably score 3 if the other team didn't defend with 10, but since they do, they'll win by 1 and take the trophy home.
Spain did the best in playing possesion football, with dribbles, wall passes, through balls etc. They didn't keep the ball, few passes where horizontal or backwards, most where vertical and threatening. Their strategy wasn't to keep posesion, but to crack a gap in the opposing defense, which got complicated by the rivals camping in their own box.
If the rivals would have attacked, like Spain did, the game would have been magnificent, and the games would have had more goals. If its anyone's fault that the game's weren't as "great" its the rivals team. Spain's victories where great because they dominated every team, and even if they didn't score 6 goals, they palyed entertaining football, something Netherlands and germany couldn't do. They where amazing cause they believed in their style, inspite of 11 giants, they had balls and attacked, thats amazing, you don't need 5 goals to be amazing.
BTW just to prove your point is completely wrong, I remember 2 specific teams who parked the bus on Barcelona. Inter, and Rubin Kazan. They lost two both on the global score. They scored the same amount of goals Spain scored every game.. So if you just called Barcelona amazing, is Spain amazing if they scored the same amount of goals? I'd say so anyway. Also, Spain more less is Barca, minus Messi, are you sure you are gonna call Spain okay, and Barca amazing? Lacks sense.
I hear your point, they beat every team by 1 except honduras, and swiss, but the score lies, they shot more, attacked more, and just constantly looked for the goal. You can't say the opposite, they didn't hold possesion in their half, instead, they held it around the riva'ls box, looking for wholes and mistakes to score, and found them every time. 1-0 was the score, but the possesion, shots, corners, everything was tilted towards Spain, meaning they dominated, meaning they played great.
