If there's anyone on the pitch you'd expect to put away a one-on-one, it'd be Antonio di Natale. The Udinese frontman is released via another throughball that eviscerates a staggering poor Germany defence and, much like Mario Balotelli in the first half, is one on one with Manuel Neuer. Unlike Balotelli, he can't score, his shot fizzing into the side netting from 18 yards. Federico Balzaretti puts away a similar chance shortly thereafter, but he's flagged for offside, as is di Natale as he tries for another one-on-one.
There are five minutes left and Germany look toast. They're still getting chances, but Italy are by far the better side right now, and even when Germany get lucky breaks -- like the Thomas Müller-Marco Reus one-two that nearly set them up for a goal -- the Italians can recover, with Balzaretti saving the day with an excellent slide tackle. This game's over.
