Spain have gone 450 minutes plus without conceding in Euro 2012 and well over 900 without conceding in the knockout rounds of major tournaments, but they really ought to have had their lead reduced here. Some clever attacking player from Italy exploited Jordi Alba's inattention on defence, and Antonio di Natale was on hand near the edge of the six yard box. The Udinese hitman should have scored, but Iker Casillas came out with a flying save to deny the only man to have beaten him this tournament.
Italy have looked significantly more threatening since di Natale's come on, at least -- that's two great chances to get themselves back into the game. In an attempt to switch things up, Cesare Prandelli deploys his third and final substitute: Thiago Motta for Riccardo Montolivo. Too little, too late.
