Gianluigi Buffon keeps Spain-Italy 0-0 as Xavi hits post

Xavi almost came up with the game-winner in the 115th minute for Spain, but Gianluigi Buffon denied him with an unbelievable save. The Italian goalkeeper did brilliantly to get anything on a hard, knuckling shot from Spain's playmaker and deflected it onto the post. Spain also had a brilliant follow-up effort, but couldn't convert.

The Spaniards have pushed harder for a winner in extra time than Italy, who seem to be holding on for penalties.
