Morata, so often the fall guy with fans and press alike, hits weakly towards the bottom right. Poor penalty. Saved by Donnarumma. The blood drains from Morata’s face.
What a way to win a fantastic game of football! As cool as you like, Jorginho has sent Italy into Sunday’s final, where they’ll play either Denmark or ... England. Same again tomorrow night?
ITALY and Spain are in extra time of their Euro 2020 semi-final - and penalties are not far away.
ITALY 1-1 SPAIN: PENALTIES!
Penalty shootout. But who will win it?
ITALY 1-1 SPAIN - THE END OF THE FIRST PERIOD OF EXTRA TIME!
102. Donnarumma is keeping Italy alive, but not necessarily with the assured pair of hands for which he has become known.
The goalkeeper is off his line again with a questionable punch, and Spain almost make him pay. Marcos Llorente manages to get a shot in as the ball bounces around but it's blocked by Chiellini.
Italy 1-1 Spain LIVE! Extra-time after Morata goal
Both of these sides have already been to extra-time in the tournament of course, Italy beating Austria here in the last-16, while Spain beat Croatia in extra-time in the same round and then went all the way to penalties to beat Switzerland in the quarters.
Federico Chiesa looked to have sent the Italians into the Euro 2020 final, but the former Chelsea man held his nerve to bag a crucial equaliser.
It was always going to be this way! Thirty more dramatic minutes coming right up!
FULL TIME: Italy 1-1 Spain
90 min: The ball brushes the arm of the Italian captain after he slides into win a challenge just inside his own area. The Spain players in the vicinity scream for a penalty but Felix Brych is quick to wave them away.
|Chiellini drops to intercept ... and the ball brushes his hand as he clears. There are screams for a penalty, but it’s not going to be awarded. To be fair, it hit his arm when he was facing the other way|
Olmo dribbles towards the Italy box and slips a pass down the middle, hoping to spring a white shirt free. Chiellini drops to intercept ... and the ball brushes his hand as he clears.
There are sreams for a penalty, but it’s not going to be awarded. To be fair, it hit his arm when he was facing the other way.
84 min. As Moreno fires another long-ranger well over the bar, more substitutes are being readied on the touchline.
82 min. It's the Spanish whose tails are up now.
They win a corner straight from kick-off, and the unflappable Italians are all of a fluster.
Olmo's delivery draws Donnarumma unnecessarily off his line, and Busquets nearly makes him pay with a looping header towards the empty net.

Spain are level! Morata, so hesitant earlier, is so clinical here! He one-twos his way through the Italian defence, exchanging crisp passes with Olmo, and sidefoots confidently into the bottom left! Redemption!

79 min. Berardi with a half-chance to seal it, but he sidefoots a 20-yarder straight at Simon.
65 min: Spain should be level. Koke, 25 yards out and a little to the left of centre, chips a glorious ball over the Italian back line and down towards Oyarzabal on the penalty spot. Any contact, and he’s surely flashing that into the net. But he makes none! As the Wembley crowd coo, and the ball bounces harmlessly wide of the right-hand post, poor Oyarzabal wears the look of a man staring exactly 1,000 yards into the distance. Drained and pained.

60 min GOAL! Italy 1-0 Spain by Chiesa 60
What a finish! What a goal! Olmo causes all sorts of trouble on the edge of the Italian box, but Alba’s cross is picked off by Donnarumma and Italy counter immediately. Verratti makes good down the left and slips infield for Immobile on the edge of the box. Laporte slides in to block. The ball breaks left. Chiesa latches onto it, takes a touch, and curls a stunner into the top right! Unstoppable, and Wembley erupts!

ITALY 0-0 SPAIN
58. Ferran Torres lines up a shot at glory, but it's plucked seamlessly out of the air by Donnarumma.
There is a place in the final of Euro 2020 up for grabs as Italy take on Spain in tonight’s first semi-final at Wembley.
Roberto Mancini’s Italy side have looked destined to go deep in the tournament right from its opening night, when they thumped Turkey in front of a partisan home crowd at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico.
Spain, on the other hand, took their time warming into the tournament, drawing their opening two group matches after a build-up that was disrupted by a positive Covid tests, but they have since hit their stride.
HT: ITALY 0-0 SPAIN
No goals as yet but it's been an enthralling contest at Wembley. Spain have controlled possession, and have looked good going forward - until the final ball. As ever, Italy have threatened with pace and aggression, and have twice come close to taking advantage of hesitation in the Spanish defence.
