The semi-final round in UEFA Euro 2020 begins with a heavyweight clash between Italy and Spain on Wednesday, July 07.
The Italy national football team extended their unbeaten run in international football to 32 games following a nail-biting 2-1 victory against Belgium and will start as favourites against Spain.
Luis Enrique’s Spain are coming off a lacklustre win against Switzerland, which went into a penalty shootout after the game finished at 1-1. La Roja struggled for consistency in their entire fixture but somehow escaped to register their first semi-finals appearance since their victorious campaign in 2012.
Italy and Spain last faced each other in a UEFA Euro game in France 2016, with the former winning 2-0. The Azzurri, however, are still plagued by the ghosts of their Euro 2012 final defeat to Spain and will be eager to exact revenge on Sergio Busquets and Co.
Gareth Southgate’s men eased into the semi-finals of UEFA Euro 2020 with a 4-0 rout of Ukraine at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. They will take on the Denmark national football team, the only dark horse remaining in the competition.
Since Christian Eriksen’s collapse in the team’s opening game of the tournament, Denmark have grown from strength to strength and brushed aside the Czech Republic 2-1 to book its first semi-final appearance in European championships since the title-winning campaign in 1992.
Both the semi-finals of UEFA Euro 2020 will be played at the Wembley Stadium in England.
