Germany Triumphs Against Italy

Germany 6 Vs 5 Italy

Germany reached their sixth successive semi-final in a major tournament, had never previously beaten Italy at a major finals – a run stretching back to the 1962 World Cup.

Last evening Germany defeated Italy 6-5 in a marathon shootout featuring 18 penalties to finally end their misfortune against their old rivals in major tournaments and reach the Euro 2016 Semi-finals on Saturday.

After a tense, tactical battle ended 1-1 after extra time, the usually clinical Germans missed three spot kicks but still progressed courtesy of even more wayward shooting by their opponents who failed to convert four of their penalties.

They will now face the winners of the other quarter-final between hosts France and Iceland, who play on Sunday.
