Spain 1-1 Italy: EURO 2012 | June 10 Match

One of the most anticipated games of the UEFA EURO 2012 group stage was this encounter between Spain and Italy which produced a 1-1 draw. Substitute Antonio Di Natale struck first in the 61st minute followed by Cesc Fabregas who levelled the match 3 minutes later.

It was a through ball from Andrea Pirlo that gave Di Natale the chance to take the lead and struck it precisely. But quick passing from Andres Iniesta and then David Silva found Fabregas in front of the goal to kick it past Gianluigi Buffon to level the score.
