Italy knocked Spain out of Euro 2020 on penalties in the semi-final of the competition before progressing to the final this weekend.
The Italians won the shootout 4-2 in front of a 60,000 strong crowd at Wembley on Tuesday night after a 1-1 draw following the end of 90 minutes and extra time.
Although he scored the equaliser earlier on in the match, Álvaro Morata missed the last, crucial spot kick for Spain, sending Roberto Mancini’s side through.

I’m enjoying the conversation at the next table in the café, in which a dad is explaining to his daughter who must be five, why he wants Spain to beat Italy as England’s midfield could cope with them better if they reach the final.
