Didn’t see this one coming, although perhaps I should have.
Italy have confounded critics all tournament long. Sure, they might have no stars in their ranks, but they a team and a coach who knows tactics, and knows how to get the best out of his players.
Only saw highlights of this one as it was on during that awkward 5pm to 7pm slot, but it looked like De Gea’s saves kept Spain in it. Yes, he spilled the free kick for their first, but without him the Italians would have been out of sight.
As it is, Spain are out of Euro 2016, and Italy face Germany next in another biggie. Might be able to watch all of that one…
