London hosted the first semifinal game of Euro 2020 where Italy and Spain crossed swords in the struggle for the final.

The match proved quite calm, with Spaniards controlling the ball and Italy counting on counterattacks. Both teams showed their class, though both goalkeepers saw really better days. No one could score for a while until the second half. Federico Chiesa took the ball during the counter attack and landed the ball in the net.

Spaniards managed to even the odds, with Alvaro Morata scoring ten minutes before the full time. The teams finished the second half, trying to grab the victory out of their opponents' hands. And again, in the overtime both Italy and Spain tried their best to play safe.

It all came to a penalty shootout. The first two shots were poor; however, Italians were luckier. Gianluigi Donnarumma was lauded as a true hero when he parried the shot by Morata. So, the fixture ended as 4-2; Italians made it to the Euro 2020 final.

In the final game, Squaddra Azzurra will face either Denmark or England; this game will be played on July 7.
