EURO 2016| Italy Stuns Spain to Progress to Quarter Final

Italy-v-SpainItaly stunned back-to-back European Champions Spain to end Vicente Del Bosque’s reign as La Roja boss.

Giorgio Chiellini’s first-half goal had looked enough to edge past the holders before Graziano Pelle confirmed victory in stoppage time and boss Antonio Conte could legitimately claim that his side should have won by more.

The Chelsea boss set up his time to nullify Spain’s threat and succeeded.

While half-time changes helped swing the game back in Spain’s favour, it wasn’t enough to keep them in the competition and Pelle’s counter-attack strike at the death sent España home at the round of 16.
