England out of Euro2012

9:37 am on 25 June 2012

Italy have beaten England 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out to qualify for the semi-finals of the Euro2012 football tournament.

Italy had much the better of the first game of the knockout-stage to go to extra time, having more than 30 attempts at goal, but it finished at nil-all.

Italy missed one and England 2 of their penalty attempts.

Italy will now play Germany in the semi-finals, while Portugal will play Spain in the other.
