Italy came out as the eventual winners from a gruelling and tiring semi final fixture against Spain, as Mancini’s men edged past the Spanish Armada on penalties to book a berth in the finals of the Euro 2020, with a chance at a shot to glory.

Federico Chiesa put Italy ahead in the 60th minute with a beautiful curling finish to the far corner, much against the run of play, but substitute Alvaro Morata drew parity for Spain after twenty minutes, after playing a quick one two with Olmo. None of the teams could find another decisive goal over the course of next forty minutes(normal time+extra time), with the game going onto the penalty shootouts. Morata, the one who was the saviour for Spain earlier, saw his decisive penalty saved by Donnarumma, before Jorginho coolly defied Simon to send him the other, as the Italians burst in celebration.

Donnarumma in action

His passing was sometimes poor and put his side under pressure. Made a good save from Olmo early on, quickly getting down on his other side to offer a good block. Made good saves and came out to collect dangerous balls. Sometimes put his team in pressure with the passing but started a quick counter with a beautiful delivery to Immobile that resulted in the goal.

Giovanni Di Lorenzo – 6.5/10

Leonardo Bonucci – 6/10 – Sought out the danger when and where necessary. Didn’t let the Spanish forwards to get the upper hand. However, could only watch Morata score the equaliser, left astounded by his deft run into the box.

Giorgio Chiellini – 6.5/10

Kept on his toes by Olmo and Oyarzabal early on in the match. Recovered well to grow into the game but couldn’t stop Morata’s run into the box as he scored the equaliser.

Emerson – 6.5/10

Nico Barella – 6/10

Dominated by the Spanish midfield early in, but got a grasp of the game later, and controlled the midfield game there after, with his intricate passing and carrying the ball up the field. Battling performance.

Pedri

Spain’s attacking engine through out. Every move was made through him, once again proving why he is so important for this team. Effortless passing, completing all 31 of his passes in the first half, and finished the game with a 98% pass accuracy and two chances created.

Ferran Torres – 5/10

Dani Olmo – 8/10

Spain’s best player on the night. Very good link up play and created some good balls in the Italian defensive third. Saw a good chance early on saved by Donnarumma, but set up morata later on for the goal with a brilliant one two play.

Mikel Oyarzabal – 4/10

Missed two good chances which fell his way and wayward with the shooting, which costed his team dearly.
