Semifinal: Italy v Spain (in London, UK)

Has anyone ever seen a hop skip and jump penalty put to the keeper's right? Seems anytime I see Jorghino or Bruno Fernandes do it it gets put to the keeper's left.

Wonderful game. Spain unlucky I felt, I thought they were excellent tonight.
They were excellent, but I just don't know if they can be considered unlucky to have missed those two big chances. Perhaps slightly unlucky overall, but they weren't robbed by any means. Either of these teams would have taken some beating in the final. And, as you said, it was an absolutely wonderful game.

Fun game, two quality teams. Was glad Italy made it due to how good they've been all tournament, whereas Spain have been a little bit patchier (they were excellent today).

Thiago put a little jump in his and went the other way. I tend to agree it's the more likely side though, especially if the keeper doesn't move at all.

Rio Ferdinand should be removed from TV. I would be a bit more optimistic if we get through than I was before seeing Italy tonight, but his jingoistic prattle suggesting they should hand us the trophy now is pitiful.

Chiellini's whole attitude at the toss for the shootout was hilarious. I'd love to see if he can keep the same lighthearted nature in a final.

Yeah it's the kind of thing that makes you actively want England to lose
