Italy face Spain in the first semi-finals of the UEFA European Championships on July 7 from 12:30 AM (IST) onwards live from the Wembley Stadium in London. The fixture could not be any bigger as the 2012 Euros finalist collide in a knockout stage once again and Italy are looking to avenge their defeat after Spain thrashed the Azzurri 4-0 to win their third Euros title. Roberto Mancini’s side have been outstanding in their performances so far.
Beating Belgium 2-1 in the quarter-finals of the Euros just proved how lethal a side Italy really are. Luis Enrique will have to focus more tactics other than just keeping possession. Spain’s clash against Croatia was a thriller in the Last 16, but the La Roja had to tip their hat to goalkeeper Unai Simon for saving them against Switzerland in the quarter’s penalty shootout.
It will surely be an amazing clash as the two heavyweights square off at Wembley Stadium in London to book their ticket to the finals of the Euros 2020. The winner between the two nations will face either England or Denmark in the summit clash at Wembley.
