1-854471

Germany triumphed 6-5 over Italy in a wild, nine-round penalty shootout to advance to the semifinals at Euro 2016 after the game ended 1-1 after extra time.

After Leonardo Bonucci’s 78th-minute penalty cancelled out Mesut Ozil’s opener for Germany, the quarterfinal was decided from the spot, where both teams missed three times before Manuel Neuer stopped Matteo Darmian’s effort in the ninth round.

Jonas Hector struck the winning effort to get Germany past the Italians for the first time in a major tournament, following four Italy triumphs in knockout stages and four group-stage draws.
