Roberto Mancini paid tribute to his squad as he admitted their penalty shootout win over Spain had been Italy’s toughest yet at Euro 2020. ‘There always comes a game where you have to dig in to be able to win,’ Mancini said. ‘It wasn’t easy by any means. Almost no one believed we could do it. And yet we are into the final.’ Three years after failing to even qualify for the 2018 World Cup, Italy will face either England or Denmark in the final on Saturday.
