  1. Ciao

    Italy 2-0 Spain

    Some were saying this game was worthy of a final, and it certainly delivered with Italy gaining a measure of revenge for the 4-0 defeat by Spain at the Euro 2012 final. Can they go all the way?

    Next up is Germany, another game worthy of a greater stage, but if Italy continue their unbeaten run in competitive matches against them, I'm not sure what it will take to stop the Azzurri. 

    Gone are the days of earning a boring 1-0 win. Italy were thrilling. Good night. 

  2. FULL-TIME

    Italy 2-0 Spain

    A message from 'The Spaniard'.

  3. Balotelli congratulates team

    Italy 2-0 Spain

    Italy 🔵🔵⚽️ Wow, I would have loved to be in France but I must say that from home and then as a fan boys are thrilling. Forza Italy.  

  4. Watch again

    Italy 2-0 Spain

    If you missed Italy's winning goal watch again below. Graziano Pelle scores another injury-time volley. 

  5. FULL-TIME

    Italy 2-0 Spain

    So after turning the tables on Italy with four wins in their last four tournament matches, the Azzurri have got their mojo back against the Spanish. 

    They look a very hard team to stop right now. A potent blend of attack, defence and togetherness. That's what all football teams aim for, right?

  6. 'Unity is our strength'

    Italy head coach Antonio Conte

    We realise our limitations and don't have a great deal of talent, so we need to play as a unit. That's our great strength.

  7. FULL-TIME

    Italy 2-0 Spain

    That was Spain's first knockout defeat in a major tournament since 2006. Is this the end of an era?

  8. 'Spain were clueless'

    Gianluca Vialli

    Former Italy striker on BBC One

    We looked mentally and physically fresher. Spain looked clueless. Italy took control of the game away from them 

  9. FULL-TIME

    Italy 2-0 Spain

    That means Italy face Germany in the quarter-finals, a team they have never lost to in a competitive match. Tasty. 

    Antonio Conte is jumping for joy with his players, who go over to their fans in arm in arm and celebrate. Gigi Buffon is on the crossbar again! Keepers, eh? 

    Amazing togetherness, and as Thierry Henry suggests, they look like they have won the tournament. 

  10. 'Italy had the answers'

    Pelle celebrates

    It was a brilliant performance from minute one to the end. When Italy were asked questions, regarding defensive capabilities, they had the answers.

  11. FULL-TIME

    Italy 2-0 Spain

    All over. Italy knock out the reigning champions Spain. What a performance from Antonio Conte's team. 

  12. Post update

    Italy 2-0 Spain

    Graziano Pelle scores

    Both of Graziano Pelle's goals have come in the 90th minute at Euro 2016. The players and fans are going bonkers.   

  13. 'Italy have schooled Spain'

    Jermaine Jenas

    Former England midfielder on Radio 5 live

    Spain have some phenomenal talent in their team, but this Italian side have schooled them.

  14. GOAL Italy 2-0 Spain

    Graziano Pelle

    Italy score

    With Spain searching for the equaliser, Italy make it safe. The ball is switched right to Matteo Darmian, he crosses to try and find Graziano Pelle, the ball lifts up and the Southampton striker makes no mistake on the volley. Game over. 

  15. GREAT SAVE!

    Italy 1-0 Spain

    What a save. The ball is clipped over the top, headed over, and Gerard Pique is up top to rescue a goal and from eight yards out Gigi Buffon dives to his right to tip the ball away. 

    Four minutes of stoppage time. 

  16. YELLOW CARD

    Italy 1-0 Spain

    Cesc Fabregas is probing, plays a cute one-two, but then Matteo Darmian buys a foul on the left side of the box. The Spanish fans are infuriated. 

    The players are then fuming as Thiago Motta seems to whack Lucas Vazquez in the face. Motta is booked. 

  17. Post update

    Italy 1-0 Spain

    Spain fancy an equaliser. David Silva is inches from finding Pedro with a nice cross, with Andrea Barzagli just toeing it away for a corner. Pedro then makes a right hash of his volleyed effort which flies into the stands. 

  18. Post update

    Italy 1-0 Spain

    Lorenzo Insigne

    Italy still searching for a second, Lorenzo Insigne is through the inside right channel but his snapshot is punched away by David de Gea. 

    Five minutes left. 

  19. Post update

    Italy 1-0 Spain

    Spain have scored 16 goals in the last 10 minutes of European Championship games, more than any other side in the competition's history.

    Allesandro Florenzi, a star performer today, comes off to be replaced by Manchester United's Matteo Darmian.

  20. SUBSTITUTIONS

    Italy 1-0 Spain

    Pedro coming on for Spain in place of substitute Aritz Aduriz, who hurt himself after a heavy fall earlier. Lorenzo Insigne replaces Eder for Italy.
