Torres netted the first goal in the first half and the second one after Leonardo Bonucci, the Italy defender, was sent off for a 2nd yellow card, that too just 3 minutes before the break. Lorenzo Pellegrini scored one for the hosts with an unlikely comeback. The Azzurri faced a defeat for the first time after losing against Portugal in September 2018.

Roberto Mancini, Italian football manager said, “This is a disappointment. We should have stayed with 11 men, we made a mistake that you can’t make at this level.”

The main person behind this massive win, Torres said, “We knew it was a special game, we went out in the semi-finals of the Euros, and what better way to beat them at home in other semi-finals.”

Spain will lock horns against either France or Belgium in the final on Sunday. The second semi-final of France vs Belgium is occurring on Thursday in Turin.
