Italy VS Spain as predicted was a very interesting match as the Scores couldn’t be settled in 90 Minutes.
Federico Chiesa Opened the Scoring in the Second Half of the fixture (60′), the move was started by their Goalkeeper, Donnaruma who rolled out the ball to Marco Verrati.
A brilliant Pass by Lorenzo Insigné who was hoping to locate Ciro Immobile was Intercepted by Aymeric Laporte’s Slide tackle but Federico Chiesa was quick to take advantage of the situation and quickly Scored from a Curled Effort.
Italy have not conceeded more than 1 goal in any of their last 35 International Matches, they played Like Fire after going Leading 1-nil from Chiesa’s Goal regarding the fact that Spain had missed so many Chances.
Seconds after Italy’s Berrardi failed to seal the game for the Italians, Spain levelled the Game thanks to Alvaro Morata and Assist by Dani Olmo.
Alvaro Morata took a touch on the ball with his right before dispatching a Low strike with his Left foot into the back of the net sending Donnaruma the wrong way. Classic Alvaro Morata!!!
Alas, Alvaro Morata levelled the game and I would say they deserved it because Luis Enrique’s side bamboozled the Azzurri for most of the match with Spain’s Legendary and Brilliant Ball Possession.
“It’s been a very long time since Wembley’s seen a match with such high technical Quality from both teams – this is an epic in the Making” Says Spain Reporter Graham Hunter.
Normal Time ended 1-1 as Italy VS Spain entered Extra Time. Remember that Spain ended up winning Six out of their last Seven Matches that reached Extra time (Four out of the Six Victories required Penalties).
The First Half of Extra Time didn’t bring the goals we’d expected but it was not Short of action. Thiago Alcantara had now been Substituted in for Spain.
Quick Reminder: Excluding Penalties, Spain have only Lost 3 out of their Last 15 Euro Finals.
No Goals after the Second Period of Extra Time, so the match went on to Penalty Shootout.
Italy Started the Shootout. Locatelli’s Penalty was saved by Unai Simon. What a Disaster for Italy! – Dani Olmo took the First Kick For Spain and his Strike was well higher than the crossbar.
Alvaro Morata also Missed his Spot Kick but The Azzurri Scored their Last Four Kicks and WON the Match!
In a night that proved more difficult than we all expected, Italy still managed to qualify for the UEFA Euro 2020 Final. After failing to Qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Italy has taken a bold step to reclaiming its place as one of the European Elites.
