Italy defeat Belgium and advance to the semi-finals
Two goals in the first half were enough to get Italy past Belgium into the Euro 2020 semi-finals.
On the way to the 2-1 victory in the exciting quarter-finals on Friday afternoon in Munich, Italy held off Belgium’s countless attempts to equalize in the second half.
Lorenzo Insigne scored the winning goal in the 45th minute. His curler in the top right corner defeated Thibault Courtois after none of the Belgian defenders stepped up to prevent the long-range shot.
Belgium scored two minutes later when Romelu Lukaku converted a penalty from a kick in the box. But that was the only goal Belgium would score.
