Arrivederci Azzurri

All over: The front page of this morning's La Gazzetta dello Sport tells the whole story of Italy's exit from Euro 2008.

Italy’s national soccer team went crashing out of Euro 2008 last night, losing out to Spain 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out, at the end of a closely fought quarter-final in Vienna. The game finished goalless after extra-time, and once again the curse of the dreaded spot-kicks proved to be Italy’s downfall. Spain will now face Russia in the semi-final. Let’s raise a glass to the unlucky Azzurri, and for those of you wishing to drown your sorrows, remember Italy is still Campioni del Mondo!
