England Vs. Italy, Euro 2012: Nocerino Goal Ruled Out

Italy finally get the ball in the net, but it's ruled out for offside. Alessandro Diamanti tries his cross-to-Antonio-Nocerino routine again, and this time he finds the AC Milan midfielder's head. Nocerino makes no mistake with the finish, crushing a header past Joe Hart and into the roof of the net. Unfortunately for Italy, he did make a mistake with his run - he was about a yard offside and the goal was ruled out by the linesman.

So, yeah, it's still 0-0 with about five minutes left of extra time. We're very likely headed to penalties here, which probably means Italy are going to go face Germany on Thursday. England don't do so well at penalties, after all, although that said they don't look too interested in scoring here.
