EURO 2008: Quarter Final (4)*** Spain 0 (4)-0 (2) Italy. ***

So it is Spain, the fourth team qualified for the semifinals. They will face Russia in the Semifinal who beat Netherlands yesterday with style. But Spain will play Russia in Thursday’s semi-final, having already beaten them 4-1 in their opening Group D match.

Spain beat Italy by 4-2 in the penalty shootout. The match was ended as 0-0 at full time and after extra time the score was same.

The match took on a predictable pattern in the first half with Italy defending resolutely and Spain overplaying the passes and underplaying the urgency.

Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas saved penalties from Daniele De Rossi and Antonio Di Natale before Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas buried the winning spot-kick.
