Italy on Tuesday beat Spain in the ongoing Euro 2020 to reach their fourth final of the European Championship and 10th major tournament final.
The win for Italy means a lot, especially when it comes to setting records. After France in 2000, Italy attained the feat of becoming the second side in Euros history to have as many as five different players score two or more goals at a single edition of the competition (Chiesa, Pessina, Insigne, Immobile and Locatelli)
The Roberto Mancini side have their joint-highest total at a major tournament, with 12 goals at Euro 2020, to their credit. Spain have their best goal return at a single edition of the Euros, after securing 13 goals at the ongoing tournament.
After the remarkable win, Mancini expressed a sigh of relief due to the tension that was all over the place in the match at Wembley.
The Azzuris completed the job with a penalty shoot-out, but Jorginho’s penalty stood out in the win which made Mancini relaxed as he was thrown about by his jubilant players.
The win for Italy means that they will either face England or Denmark in Sunday’s final.
