Pellè scores as Italy knock out Spain

By SFC Media time Mon 27 Jun Club

Graziano Pellè scored his second goal of UEFA EURO 2016, as Italy knocked current holders Spain out of the competition thanks to a 2-0 win in the last 16.

After being denied by David de Gea early in the game, Pellè got his goal late on as the Italians progressed to the quarter-finals.

Giorgio Chiellini finally found a way past de Gea just after the 30-minute mark to put Italy ahead.

Manchester United goalkeeper de Gea made a number of good saves to keep the score at 1-0, before Pellè found the net with a fine volley in stoppage time.

Italy will now face world champions Germany in the last eight of the competition.
