Spain's tournament ends more quickly than most would have imagined, getting knocked out in the round of 16 by a magnificent Italian side with a 2-0 loss.
This was a really tough draw for the first round of the knockout stage as two of the historically best tournament teams went up against each other and one had to go home. It was deservedly Spain that did, as Italy outplayed them thoroughly. David De Gea came up with two huge saves in the first 11 minutes but a save from a free kick was not cleared away and Italy pounces on the loose ball to take the lead. De Gea may have been at fault for the goal, but he also single-handedly kept Spain in it with a couple more top-drawer stops. In the end, the Spanish attack could not break down Italy, with just an occasional flash of hope for Andres Iniesta, while PL players like David Silva and Cesc Fabregas offered very little. Gerard Pique had a chance to level the score on 89 minutes but his shot from 8 yards was stopped by veteran Gianluigi Buffon. Italy then added a second goal moments later to put the game to bed.
