Manchester United David de Gea Thanked as #Italy beat #Spain and reach the quarter-finals! #Euro2016

Italy have reached the quarter-finals of Euro 2016 after defeating holders Spain 2-0 in Monday’s last-16 clash at the Stade de France.

The Azzurri were quickest off the starting blocks as Mattia De Sciglio and Graziano Pelle weighed in with early half-chances after just two minutes played.

Vicente del Bosque’s charges had David de Gea to thank for keeping them in the game with a host of world-class saves, with Pelle, Emanuele Giaccherini and Alessandro Florenzi all being thwarted by the Manchester United man.

Spain’s resistance was broken in the 33rd minute, however, as Eder’s free kick was palmed by De Gea into the path of Giorgio Chiellini, who duly slotted home.
