A lifeline for Germany! A series of crosses into the Italy box aren't adequately cleared and eventually a ricochet strikes first Leonardo Bonucci's and then Federico Balzaretti's hands. The Germany players scream for a penalty; Stéphane Lannoy points to the spot, and Mesut Özil dispatches his shot past Gianluigi Buffon high to his left to make it 2-1.
There are about two minutes left for Germany to score, though, so this looks like far too little, too late. Manuel Neuer keeps coming forward, which resulted in a hilarious diving header on the halfway line, but it really, really looks as though Italy will go through despite that goal. They deserve it, too -- they've been superb.
So much for Germany as favourites to win the competition, eh?
