Final day of the last 16.

Live on BBC One

One of the standout games in the first knockout round and a repeat of the 2012 final that Spain won 4-0.

Need an early goal in this to open it up otherwise it'll just be too cagey and defensive

Thought the odds on Italy to qualify were massive but didn't have the balls to back them. Wish I had as they're in total control of this game.

Spain for all the stars and gifted players look so average. Italy are an example of how to play to your strengths and fight for each other. Very deserved lead.

My god De Gea's an amazing keeper. I just wish he'd leave the w*nkers so I could like him.

I was concerned before the game that this would follow the expected narrative of Italy sitting back absorbing Spain pressure and then trying to nick a goal on the break, but it's not like that at all!

classic Italy. I'd be wary of Chelsea if I was the likes of Man City, Arsenal etc this season

This squad is not one of their best but they make up for it by playing to their strengths.

When it comes to the big tournaments they always turn up. You can not fault them for their desire and superior tactical ability, they are a proper team.

Think we should be looking at some Italian players especially in the centre back department we won't go far wrong.

They last bloody ages as well

Italy showing some Palace kind of football on the counter, a lot more likeable than the "let's roll it around to each other for 90 minutes" Spain. Very exciting so far.

Good game Italians look very good....Refreshing to see an open game of football.

Please god let England score an early goal so Iceland have to go for it.

Couple of dodgy decisions against the Italians in the last few minutes... this could start getting nasty.

Les Butler
27-06-2016, 05:19 PM
That was a dodgy foul then..

Les Butler
27-06-2016, 05:20 PM
Italians should be two or three up...

Thought Spain would edge this, can't see it now. Expect Italy to put another one away on the break

Justin Beaver

The Italian manager is starting to get on my nerves running at the bottom of the screen micromanaging everything.

Cheerio Spain! They have offered nothing all tournament.

Italy have a real chance this year, they never should have been 20/1 to win this entire thing.

Masterclass.

The new Chelsea manager is an absolute fruit cake. Brilliant :)

Les Butler

Never get that camera goes on the spanish supporters after the goal was scored and they all smiled and jumped up and down...I would still be looking daggers at anyone let alone smiling I'm bealy still getting over the FA cup FFS.

I think the loss of Verratti and Marchisio might have had something to do with the odds.They have been brilliant though.

I had a punt at 21 on Betfair. They are always so over priced.

I bet on them at 20. Sold them now at 7. I knew they'd beat Spain - a team living on past reputation.

I'll let the 20 ride, they may give the Germans are good game. Think they have played better than them tbh.

I also think that teams lacked composure when they won ball off Spain. Croatia and Italy were very comfortable on ball and moved forward with pace and a slice of quality
