Yeah, that was coming. Actually, scratch that. David Silva headed goals are never, ever coming. And yet, here one is. Andres Iniesta threads a pass in through the right channel for an onrushing Cesc Fabregas, and he blows past Giorgio Chiellini and cuts back for Silva, lurking on the edge of the six-yard box. The Manchester City midfielder pulls off a lovely flicked header, and Gianluigi Buffon can do absolutely nothing about it as it flies into the top corner to give the defending champions a 1-0 lead.
It's been a brilliant start from Spain, who are playing their best football of the tournament so far. Italy look at sixes and sevens -- if they want to get back into this match, they'll have to score against a team who haven't conceded in over 900 minutes of knockout football. Good luck with that.
