I must say they did well to go through in the place of the Belgian team and record stool stand in favor of the Italian national team and they have proven to be a hard team to go by

Donnarumma had a good performance in this match, he really saved his team in a good way in the second half of the match and we must recognize his effort. Italy played very well, they were able to kill Belgium in the first half, but then it was a bit ugly 2-1? Belgium could have equalized and it would have been a different story later, but Italy was able to defend very well and managed to win in the 90' regulation minutes.

Great one from Azzurris defeating World No 1 side Belgium. Was a really interesting match will lot of opportunities. Italy did not to miss theirs and held the second Half well after all the barrage of attacks from Belgium.

Donnarumma was really impressive on the night some outstanding saves. Now they face Spain in the Semi final. Will love to see who makes it pass between this two come Tuesday.
