  1. Prandelli's removal of Balotelli for Di Natale paid off almost straight away, and overall Italy will gain a lot of confidence from that performance.

  2. I'm staying online to publish your thoughts on that game - tim_oscroft@hotmail.com. Italy should be happy with a point, but no side should be too happy at losing a lead. Spain were far from their best, and it will be fascinating to see what they do regarding strikers for the next game. Same again? Torres? Or Negredo or Llorente?

  3. Spain 1-1 ItalyAll over in Gdansk.

  4. 90+2:Xabi Alonso frustrated as his shot fades wide of the left hand post.

  5. 90+1:Italy hardly having a touch now, but Spain unable to break them down.

  6. 90: Three minutes added on.

  7. 89:Nocernino replaces Motta. Italy looking to shore things up for a valuable point, which is not how Spain will see it.

  8. 89:Maggio booked for tugging Iniesta back, seconds after Marchisio shoots straight at Casillas.

  9. 88:Navas scuffs a shot-cross from the right, Buffon flops down to it.

  10. 87: Much more urgency from Spain now, but it could be too little, too late for all three points.

  11. 85:Not Fernando's greatest day - he lifts the ball over the bar after breaking away down the middle.

  12. 84:Torres booked for an arm thrown at di Rossi.

  13. 83:Torres dithers with a couple of team mates waiting for a decent pass, which does not materialise from the much-discussed Chelsea striker..

  14. 82: Alonso fustrated as the ref blows against him. Del Bosque not looking any happier than earler.

  15. 81: Motta is all over Alba like a cheap suit, but not a booking offence.

  16. 80:The wall does the job that walls have to do, blocking Xavi's attempt.

  17. 79:Chiellini booked after catching Iniesta, Spain now have free kick 25 yards put.

  18. 78:Italy will be looking at this as opportunity missed now if it stays like this.

  19. 76: Italy have been under the cosh since the equaliser, but Di Natale misses a wonderful chance with only the keeper to beat, hooking a volley wide!

  20. 75: Torres spurns a great chance within seconds, one on one with Buffon but a poor touch allows the Italian keeper to use his feet to clear. I think the Torres of a couple of years ago would have scored there.
