Italy has won a dramatic Euro 2020 semi-final after its match against Spain was decided in a penalty shootout.
Both sides failed to convert their opening spot kicks as Manuel Locatelli’s effort was saved and Dani Olmo blasted over the bar. Italy nailed its next three penalties while Spain slotted home twice, before Alvaro Morata’s shot was saved.
Italy scored its fifth penalty, courtesy of Jorginho, to secure victory, with a 4-2 scoreline in the shootout.
Morata’s late equaliser saw Spain force extra time at Wembley this morning as the contest stood deadlocked at 1-1 after 90 minutes.
Federico Chiesa gave Italy the lead with a fine curling strike on the hour mark. But the much-maligned Morata, dropped to the bench for the first time in the tournament, was introduced as a substitute and slotted home with 10 minutes remaining after a neat one-two with Olmo.
