Germany celebrate after a weak penalty shoot-out

Germany 1 Italy 1 (Germany won 6-5 on penalties)

Germany advanced to the semi-final of Euro 2016 after an enthralling penalty shoot-out success over Italy in Bordeaux.

Mesut Ozil had opened the scoring for Germany on 65 minutes after a tight tactical battle, with Leonardo Bonucci levelling from the penalty spot with 12 minutes remaining as the game ended 1-1 after extra time.

But the penalty shoot-out itself would be dramatic as both sides passed up the opportunity to advance before Matteo Darmian missed Italy’s ninth penalty and saw Jonas Hector score to finally settle the contest.
