Italy vs Spain Euro Cup 2020 semifinal: Full squads of teams

Italy steamrolled through their competition so far in the tournament; Spain have regained some clinical attacking prowess and dominance


Italy face Spain in the first semifinal of Euro Cup 2020. Both the teams have not lost a single game in the group stages; Italy had three wins whereas Spain had one win and two draws.

Italy has steamrolled through their competition so far in the tournament. They knocked out tournament favourites Belgium in the quarterfinals with a 1-2 win at the Allianz Arena. Players like Insigne and Berardi continue to trouble opposition defences with their flair and pace, Verratti and Barella have been key players who control the game from the midfield with constant ball retention and crucial assists.

Spain on the other hand have regained some of their clinical attacking prowess and dominance, which was missing in the initial stages of the tournament. They secured their crucial win over a 10 man Switzerland after Freuler was sent off for his challenge on Gerard Moreno. They scraped a close win on penalties over Switzerland. Morata has yet to give a convincing performance for Spain, he will look to make his mark and lead his team to the final.

Spain have lost just two of their last 14 meetings against Italy and they still remember their win against Italy on way to the 2008 Uefa European Championship title, which truly marked their arrival as a top team and started a run of success which saw them win the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012, where they thrashed Italy 4-0 in the final.

However, the current Italian side is very different from the ultra-defensive teams of the past, with Roberto Mancini building a team based on pace in attack and drive in midfield.

This fixture will be a tough challenge for both teams as they are coming off of high confidence from their previous outings. The kick-off time for Italy vs Spain semifinal match is 12:30 AM IST at Wembley Stadium, on 7 July.
