Italy Beat Belgium in Thriller to Reach Semi-final

Italy were deserved winners after producing a confident display to beat Belgium 2-1 in a tense Euro 2020 quarter-final in Munich.

Nicolo Barella’s opener and Lorenzo Insigne’s stunning strike opened up a two-goal lead before Romelu Lukaku equalised before half-time in a thrilling contest.

Lukaku did come close to an equaliser and with Kevin De Bruyne on the pitch, Belgium were always a danger to Roberto Mancini’s side but the second goal just would not come.

Italy can look forward to a semi-final showdown with Spain at Wembley, while Belgium are left to wonder whether the moment has passed for the so-called golden generation.
