Player of the match: Jorginho
This was not a stellar performance from Italy as they were under pressure for much of the game. They weren’t at their creative best but Jorginho continued to distribute the ball excellently throughout, despite facing an impressive Spanish midfield.
He then stepped up when it really mattered and slotted his penalty past Unai Simon to win the game as if he didn’t even know the gravity of the situation.
