My that was close

Por primera vez en los últimos 24 años, España jugará una semifinal de la Eurocopa. Lo hará este jueves ante Rusia al superar ayer a Italia en la tanda de penaltis tras el 0-0 de las dos horas de juego.


It was a change of fortune for the Spanish, who have gone out of three major championships: the World Cups of 1986 and 2002 and Euro '96 - all in the quarter-finals on penalties. But this time goalkeeper Casillas made two crucial saves in the penalty shoot-out which means that Spain will meet Russia in the semi finals on Thursday.
