It’s time for the Euro 2020 semifinals! These European Championships have been unforgettable and a real treat for football fans who have watched international football at its peak, and now it’s time to find out the finalists.

We begin at Wembley with the marquee semifinal between Italy and Spain. The Azzurri have been the best team in the tournament so far with excellent performances, with exciting attacking football and a well-organized defense. Spain started slow and played 240 minutes in the first two knockout stage matches, but Luis Enrique’s side has become stronger and more resilient with every game.

Eric García, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets and Pedri all start for Spain. This should be a good one, and a trip to Wembley is at stake. Vamos!
