  |   Football

🇮🇹Italy finished off 🇪🇸Spain 2⃣-0⃣ to progress to the quarter-finals of Euro🏆 2016. The Azzurri's performance mirrored their masterclass😎 against Belgium in their first group game.
Artiz Adruiz💪 was brought on for Nolito in the 2nd half to put pressure on the 3⃣-man backline of Italy. Alvaro Morata⭐ missed the easiest of chances😓 in the 50' when he headed the ball right into the arms of Buffon from 5⃣ yards. Italy always looked to extend their lead and came close when Giaccherini⚡ curled a lovely ball into the box but none of the attackers were able to tap it in. Spain tested Buffon✋ from range as the game approached the last ten minutes. Right at the stroke of 90 minutes⏱, Pique's shot was pushed away by the Juventus keeper👏 to keep Italy in the lead. Two minutes into injury time Pelle put the game beyond doubt😃, as a swift counterattack resulted in the striker latching onto to a deflected cross inside the box and smashing👟 it past De Gea. Spain's defence of their title🏆 has come to end.
Italy🇮🇹 will face Germany🇩🇪 in the quarter- finals.
