Italy Awaits England or Denmark at Euro Finals after crashing Spain out on Penalties (Full Highlights)


The 2020 European Championship is gradually coming to an end and Italy who are one of the many hosts are determined to clinch the trophy.

Hyped before it even kicked off, Italy vs Spain delivered but it was the Italians who came out on top after one hundred and twenty minutes of football at Wembley.

Both teams missed some clear cut Chances in the first 45 minutes but failed to take advantage of them leaving the game at 0-0 into the break.

Spain looked like they were possessed when they start to display their usual Tiki Taka football forcing the Italians to defend and rely on the counter attack.

That paid off for them in the 60th minute when a quick fire counter attack led by Lazio Star Ciro Immobile was cleared into the path of Fedrico Chiesa to curl in a real stunner to put Italy ahead.

Spain continued to dominate the game and got their reward with a one on one pass between Dani Olmo and Alvaro Morata run through the Italian defense for the Juventus number 9 to put his side back on level late in the game to force it into extra time.

There were no strikes in the 30 minutes of extra time played and just as the rule says, it is now time to use Penalties as the tie breaker.

The lottery favored Italy with both Morata and Olmo who combined for Spain’s equalizer missing their respective Penalties to send Italy into the Finals waiting for the winner between England and Denmark tomorrow.
