Germany Vs. Italy, Euro 2012 Semifinals: Match Underway

We're off and running in Euro 2012's second semifinal and PLEASE SOMEONE SCORE TODAY FOR THE LOVE OF MANKIND. We're at a goal drought of more than four hours at this point, and it'd be nice if one of Germany and Italy felt up to the task of entertaining us today. Whoever wins gets to play Spain in the final, which is a great incentive if you really enjoy running around chasing the ball for hours.

Anyway, after some lovely national antheming, Italy kick off. It doesn't take them long to look to exploit Germany's most obvious weakness, right back Jerome Boateng, and Antonio Cassano instantly gets the better of him. An attempted one-two with Riccardo Montolivo breaks down before much can happen, however - although that's still more action that we had in most of the last semifinal.
