114' - GOAL! Austria pull one back! Kalajdzic dives to meet Schuab's corner at the near post and sneaks in the ball to get one back for Austria. Do they still have hope here?

105 - GOAL! Matteo Pessina makes it 2-0 for Italy. Fantastic finish from Pessina to break the Austrian hearts. Surely this will be enough to get them through.

Bachmann Save

104' - SAVE! What a fantastic save from Bachmann. A delightful free kick from Insigne but Bachmann, on full stretch, parries it away.

Jun 27, 2021 02:36 (IST)

95' - GOAL! Italy finally make the breakthrough and Federico Chiesa gives them that. David Alaba is dragged out of his position and Chiesa is left completely unmarked on the far post. He receives the cross, takes the touch and volleys the ball home. Cool and quality finish!

93' - Italy have been in great form since the past couple of years and hence, it would be interesting to see how they react to this adversity.

Italy 0-0 Austria

Jun 27, 2021 02:25 (IST)

Italy have taken 18 shots in 90 minutes but only two of them have been on target and that speaks volume of how well shaped Austria were the entire match.

67' - Goal Disaallowed! David Alaba does extremely well to get to the end of a cross and heads it extremely well towards the far corner. Arnautovic goes to the ball and heads it in. Massive celebrations from Austria but the VAR check spoils the party. Arnautovic is adjudged to be offside and the goal does not stand.

63' - Austria are now beginning to test Italy as Donnarumma has to pull off a save. X Schlager's shot was blocked by Immobile and then Arnautovic's shot at goal was saved by Donnarumma.

The second half of Italy vs Austria is underway with the scoreline goalless.

Italy 0-0 Austria

Jun 27, 2021 01:20 (IST)

HALF TIME! It's goalless at the Wembley after 45 minutes even though the match has been played at a very good tempo with Italy dominating the proceedings as expected. Howver, Austria have done well to defend as a team mostly and the scoreline is a good one for them. Immobile was unlucky to hit the woodwork and Italy would look to make their dominance count in the second half.

Italy 0-0 Austria

Jun 27, 2021 01:13 (IST)

43' - Despite the fact that Italy have had the ball and have dominated the proceedings, Austria have defended well as a team.

Immobile Hits Woodwork

32' - Off the Post! Immobile, very calmly, just takes a sweet strike towards goal and it hits the woodwork. No Austrian closed him down and gave him all the time and space to go for goal. Unlucky for him!

Italy 0-0 Austria

Jun 27, 2021 00:50 (IST)

18' - Arnautovic fights off Italian defenders to receive a good long but his shot on the goal was off target.

Italy 0-0 Austria

17' - As expected, Italy have more of the ball and are trying to put Austria under pressure. So far though Austria have held their shape well.

Italy 0-0 Austria

6' - Excellent ball towards Immobile but it has just a tad bit more weight and Immobile misses it by a whisker as Bachmann collects the ball.

Substitutes Federico Chiesa and Matteo Pessina struck in extra-time as Italy beat battling Austria 2-1 to reach the quarter-finals of Euro 2020 at Wembley on Saturday. The two teams were locked at 0-0 after 90 minutes in London, with Italy enjoying the better of the first half but Austria rattling Roberto Mancini’s side in the second period. Chiesa struck early in extra-time to calm Italy’s nerves and another goal from Pessina set up a quarter-final against the winners of Sunday’s tie between Belgium and holders Portugal, despite late drama.

Italy vs Austria: REPORT | GALLERY

Having emerged as Group A winners with a 100 percent record after playing all three of their games in Rome, Italy were on the road for the first time in the tournament.

The match went to extra-time but it did not take long for Italy to make their mark.

The impressive Spinazzola found Chiesa, who controlled the ball and smashed in from close range five minutes into the extra half an hour.

Italy effectively ended the tie 10 minutes later when the ball fell for Pessina, and he drilled home before racing towards the corner flag and throwing himself on the turf.

But there was still time for late drama when Austria’s Sasa Kalajdzic stooped to head the ball in at the near post from a corner with a little over five minutes to go but their frantic final efforts were in vain.
