SPAIN'S TITLE DEFENCE IS OVER!

Loses 2-0 to Italy.
European football giants have been knocked out of the euro 2016
competition by Italy. This evening they spanish team comprising of
Iniesta, Sergio Ramos, Pedro, David de Gea and others were beating by
a faster and more coordinated Italian side.
The Spanish team have lost the opportunity to defend the european
title which they won four years ago. Giorgio Chiellini broke the
deadlock in the 33rd minute with a tap-in on a rebounding ball from De
Gea. Though Spain as usual enjoyed much of possessive football, Italy
looked much more deadly in front and Spain almost paid for it on two
occasions.
Superb saves from De Gea helped to keep the Italian team at bay
right from the 8th minute including a superb save in the 37th minute
when Emanuele Giacherrini made an effort to drill a shot in the top
corner of the goal. Long before Spain settled into the game. The
first half ended with Italy in a pole position to move to the next
round of the competition.
Starting again after the break, Morata got a splendid chance to
hit an equaliser but just headed the ball into the veteran palms of
Buffon. Six minutes later Italy missed another opportunity to increase
the gap, thanks to another world class save by De Gea.
Some efforts were made by the Spanish forward line but Buffon
remained largely untested throughout the second half of the game.
Points out the 100% commitment of Italy's powerful backline.
At the 77 minutes mark, ageing goalkeeper Buffon saw a bit of
action when he had to pull of a gasping save from Pique's blistering
shot. At 83 minutes, Pedro came on for substitute Aritz Aduriz.
Spain couldn't even continue the record of the most goals scored
in the last ten minutes of any game in a european competition. More
than any team. At 90 minutes, Italy doubled the lead when Pelle
drilled a shot home from six yard.
In the last Euro, both teams met in the finals and Spain ran out
clear winners with a 4-0 score line.
