Regular time ended 1-1, as well as extra time
120 minutes were not enough to establish the first finalist. Now the penalties.
Advantage of Chiesa in the 60 ‘, an opportunity for Berardi in the 68’, but the red Furies take us back with Morata in the 80 ‘. Complicated game in London, in the first half a great save by Donnarumma. In the final of the 45 ‘an Emerson cross.
GOAL! Italy-SPAIN 1-1! Alvaro Morata’s goal in the 80th minute
GOAL! ITALY-Spain 1-0! Federico Chiesa’s network at 60 ‘: Immobile receives centrally from Insigne and is stopped at the last minute; the Juventus winger recovers the ball from a tight angle with a wonderful right foot and finds the winning corner at the far post and leads the Azzurri forward.
There is Federico Chiesa in the formation of Italy. Domenico Berardi will then sit on the bench, as against Belgium. Spain will line up ‘on the mirror’, therefore with the 4-3-3, in which however Luis Enrique does not foresee the use of Alvaro Morata from the beginning, who will go on the bench as well as the other first striker Gerard Moreno. The Spanish trident is therefore atypical, with the exterior Oyarzabal ‘false nueve’ and Dani Olmo and Ferran Torres on the sides.
