Follow live coverage as Italy face Spain in the first semi-final at Euro 2020, with the two nations meeting at Wembley.
For the fourth consecutive Euros, Italy and Spain will meet, though this time there is a spot in Sunday’s final at Wembley Stadium on the line.
The two continental powers’ last meeting on the biggest stage in Europe came in the Euro 2016 round of 16, where Italy avenged its 4-0 drubbing in the 2012 final against Spain with a 2-0 victory.
Italy comes into the semifinal, its first at a major tournament since Euro 2012, on the heels of an inspiring win over top-ranked Belgium thanks to first-half goals from Nicoló Barella and Lorenzo Insigne. However, manager Roberto Mancini will have to replace standout left back Leonardo Spinazzola after the Roma winger suffered a torn Achilles in the quarterfinals. Emerson has been called upon to fill the void in the starting lineup.

Spain, meanwhile, is coming off a wild, penalty-shootout win over Switzerland in the quarterfinals after the Swiss ousted tournament favorite France on penalties. La Furia Roja only mustered an eighth-minute own goal from Swiss midfielder Denis Zakaria, but prevailed on penalty kicks, 3-1. In a bit of a surprise, Luis Enrique has elected to leave striker Alvaro Morata on the bench, going with a false-nine approach in the attack.
The winner of the match will go on to the final in London to face either England or Denmark, who play in the other semifinal match on Wednesday.
