Italy vs. England

How Italy got here: The Italians struck first against Spain and looked to be cruising to the final before Alvaro Morata brought the Spanish level. The teams failed to separate themselves after extra time, leading to penalties. Jorginho hit the winning penalty for Italy to send the Azzurri to the final.

How England got here: The Three Lions advanced after getting all they could handle from Denmark in the semifinals. The Danes drew first blood in the 30th minute but England equalized in the 39th minute. The game dragged into extra time with Denmark looking entirely out of gas and just trying to survive. Raheem Sterling drew a very questionable penalty in the 104th minute and Harry Kane took the shot. It was blocked, but the goalkeeper could not hold on and Kane drilled in the rebound for what proved to be the difference in the 2-1 match.
