Italy player ratings Gianluigi Donnarumma – 7 After a stunning performance by the young goalkeeper against Belgium, Donnarumma was at the center of things once again. There were a few bad kicks in the first half but he managed to save one cleverly from Dani Olmo. I went in the wrong direction for Alvaro Morata’s goal but he managed to score the decisive penalty. Giovanni Di Lorenzo – 8 A strong actor who seems to like to defend. He opposed it with the Spanish movement but was usually hard-working, repeatedly coming close to Ferran Torres and was not always fair. He managed to keep the Manchester City man somewhat cool. Leonardo Bonucci – 7 A great defender, Bonucci had a busy night with the movement of Spain’s forwards but he tended to be the reserve man who was there to sweep the menace on the right side of the Italy defence. Once he defended his team box well. Nerve free penalty under pressure. Giorgio Chiellini – 7 The veteran captain had never faced anyone against him early on and liked the one-on-one scrimmage, so it was a different kind of test for him at Wembley. Instead, he found himself dragged by Olmo and was often unsure whether or not to follow him into midfield. He was caught by Morata’s goal but generally returned to his goal as the match progressed. Emerson-6 Asked to fill the void left by Leonardo Spinazzola at left-back, Emerson made several rounds of driving but was unable to break through as did his predecessor despite one attempt from a tight corner. Lucky when trying and failing to play hacker Mikel Oyarzabal. alternative. Nicolo Parilla – top scorer against Belgium 7A, came close to scoring early here when he hit the post, but his attempt was canceled for offside. Always a threat because of his overrun, it was a tough job against Spain. One bad pass almost let Torres in and was taken off as Italy added more energy. Jorginho – 7 goalscorer from the winning penalty. The accelerator at the base of midfield, Jorginho had a very good tournament but he is used to controlling matches and it was not easy against Spain. With opponents in control of the ball, he had to spend most of his evening trying to get it back. Until he won the match, Marco Verratti – another 6 who had a great tournament with his clever passing, Verratti had to show the other side of his game in this match – and made his first mistake in the opening minute. Italy struggled to get their playmaker just as much as he wanted, Federico Chiesa – Italy’s 8A champion thanks to his goal, which was a great opener finish. He made his way into the team with some great performances and proved his willingness to feud for his team up to the dramatic moment. He almost put Domenico Berardi on another before pulling out. This may have been a mistake when he could swing with his left foot but there was a clever pass to Lorenzo Insigne that his teammate couldn’t collect and then a nice flick or two. He just couldn’t get him in the game enough and seemed to miss the Spinazzola races behind him. He almost played one – two for Immobile but this was his best moment in the first half. His best match of the match was passing in the lead up to Chissa’s goal. SubsDomenico Berardi – 6On for Immobile Once Italy took the lead that meant plenty of defense but still had a chance to double the advantage midway through the second half. His shot was easily tamed and easily blocked by the goalkeeper’s legs. He did better in extra time when he appeared to score the winning goal but was offside. Matteo Pessina – 6 appeared just as Italy tried to finish the match but switched to running, largely unable to stem the tide. He broke off playing and helped keep his team in it. Rafael Toloi – 6 A Brazilian-born player who replaced Emerson and went to right-back with Di Lorenzo switching to the left side as Italy sought to tighten the defense in the latter stages. . He was booked due to a parody error by 5A star Manuel Locatelli early in the tournament but lost his place. He introduced new legs in the middle of the field but had little chance of swaying the opponent’s game. A low penalty save, Andrea Belotti – 7, took on the task of chasing the ball in the role of this lone striker and was actually his moment in overtime as Italy threatened in the break. Fierce penalty kick too: Federico Bernardeschi – 7 came for Chiesa early in the second half of extra time. She had one of Italy’s best chances of late but she aborted the attack with a wrong click. His penalty was quite excellent though. Spain’s player rating – Unai Simon 6 – only about Emerson’s shot off the crossbar before the break but didn’t have a chance with the Chiesa ball – though it’s never been good when the goalkeeper isn’t diving, right? One penalty saved, but it wasn’t enough. Cesar Azpilicueta – 6 – exhibited a lack of speed on several occasions, although the lack of protection or support when he was topped by two for one was more problematic. It offered too much breadth when Spain was in possession to extend the play and was always shown “outside”. Eric Garcia – 5 Does Spain have a soft center? He could and should have done more to stop Chiesa from shooting on target for his chance and very slow after 10 minutes to prevent the same player from shooting at Simon’s feet. Coming off injury too late, Aymeric Laporte is Spain’s best defender, and it is particularly unfortunate that his excellent slip interference in preparation for Italy’s goal awarded Chiesa the possession. Other than that, he was solid with very little defense to do in a match in which Spain had possession of the ball and played an important role in the equalizer for Spain with a clever pass across the lines to Morata. To Donnarumma which led to Italy breaking the score. Too much on the sidelines. Koke – 8 Unknown excellence in the Spanish midfield that dominated their Italian counterparts in the opening hour. A cross for Oyarzabal after Spain conceded he deserved better – certainly Koke could not have been replaced soon afterwards had Oyarzabal touched the ball instead of fresh air. He was booked early when his loss of possession was followed by a stark pull of Barilla’s shirt during the first half. He warned late early in the second half and had just come close to scoring himself when Italy broke for the score. Pedri – 8 is an absolute delight. Some of the teen’s passes were a clear cut above as he completed, remarkably, all of his 31 attempts in the first half. It faded a bit the longer the game went on, but Pedri is sure to be a key player in world football for years to come. Ferran Torres – 5 struggling to get into the game, struggled to make an impact and was disqualified for understandably 30 minutes. To go when Spain found itself in need of a target. He simply needed to put in more effort to become more involved and integrated. Dani Olmo – 8Brilliant bar His final touch. Lots of neat footwork and sharp play in stopping, but he couldn’t take his first half chance when the ball landed at his feet 10 yards away. However, it required a sharp tackle to deny him, and his desire to join play was shown when he set Morata on his target. It is hard to argue that Olmo does not deserve this contribution for his willingness to get involved. He certainly didn’t deserve to miss the penalty. Mikel Oyarzabal – 4 The surprise selection was followed by the sudden spread as the youngster lined up on the right flank. He hit his streak early when he failed to control Pedri’s superb pass and then put a crimping reel first off the edge of the area just 25 yards over the bar. The worst was to follow shortly after Italy’s opening game when he missed the ball completely from Koke’s chip. It was replaced after a few minutes. SubsAlvaro Morata – 6 was immediately called up when Spain fell behind and fired when it mattered most with a quiet finish as Donnarumma bet on the striker passing through the goal. Unfortunately, he could not beat the same man with a penalty and his recovery did not last long. Gerrard-6 was upset by a good chance of settling things down in normal time shortly after Morata equalized. Rodri scored a penalty though. – 6 in the last 20 minutes and settled smoothly alongside Busquets to keep Spain on alert. Marco Llorente – 6 The introduction was a real indication of Spain’s determination to win the competition before reaching the lottery. Penalties. Live wire in overtime from outside and a toe poke towards goal was blocked near the line by Bonucci.Tiago – 6A Busquets’ substitute in the first half during overtime. However, that number wasn’t quite composed, as one Hollywood pass missed her target by at least 20 yards, and a very ambitious free kick was missed from distance. Expertly transformed by penalty, Pau Torres – 6 emergency change after Garcia stopped after 110 minutes of play, and what’s next, the Euro 2020 final will take place on Sunday at Wembley Stadium, at 8pm.
