UEFA Euro 2020 Italy vs Spain 6 JULY
It will look to repeat the Euro 2012 final win by Spain 4-0. This game will also be a way for Italy to show their support at the top of football. Italy has emerged victorious after a difficult few years that saw them miss the 2018 World Cup. They have won all three of their group stage matches and scored seven goals, while keeping three clean sheets. They needed to win Austria 2-1 in extra time, so their run in the knockout stage has not been easy. This was the same score as their quarterfinal win over Belgium. They were slight underdogs in that game, but they dominated it.
Spain hasn’t had an easy time in the knockout stages. However, they were very poor in the group stage, winning only one of three games. Luis Enrique’s team started Group E with two draws against Sweden, Poland and Slovakia before finishing second. With five minutes left in the last-16 tie against Croatia, they appeared to be at ease, with 3-1 lead. However, they were unable to hold on to that advantage and fell to 3-3. They needed additional time to win. Spain were further pushed by Yann Sommer in the final round. He failed to score in Switzerland’s goal to take La Roja into penalties. Spain eventually lost.
