The match finally rolled over to the penalty shoot-out for a decision after the match remained 1-1 for 120 minutes including 30 minutes of the extra time.

In the penalties, Spain faltered 2-4 enabling Italians to advance to the final where either England or Denmark will take them on in the same venue.

England and Denmark will play the second semi final here on Wednesday.

As per Indian Standard Time (IST), the second semi final match will begin at 12:30 am on Jul 8.
