  1. 90

    It's all over and Italy will play Spain in Sunday's final of Euro 2012 after deservedly overcoming favourites Germany 2-1 in Warsaw tonight. Mario Balotelli is the hero as his two first-half goals proved the difference but the margin of victory could have been greater had they not been so wasteful.

  2. 90

    Hummels is penalised for a foul on Barzagli and is subsequently shown the yellow card.

  3. 90

    Germany frantically try to get the ball forward as they search for the most dramatic of equalisers but Italy repell the threat.

  4. 90

    GOAL OZIL - Ozil makes no mistake from the spot as he clinically fires his shot into the top corner. Could this spark a stunning comeback?!

  5. 90

    Late drama as Germany are given a penalty following a handball against Balzaretti.

  6. 90

    There will be four minutes of stoppage time to play before the final whistle sounds.

  7. 90

    Neuer is up for the corner but the ball ends up falling for Ozil, who fires his shot wide from the edge of the box.

  8. 89

    Buffon spills the ball inside the box before his defenders help him out to boot the ball behind for a corner.

  9. 88

    Motta is booked after a foul in midfield. Italy have everyone back as they try to prevent an unlikely German comeback.

  10. 87

    An early cross from the right is affled by Buffon and another opportunity passes by for Germany.

  11. 86

    Kroos' volley from just outside the box is always rising and Buffon watches it fly high over the bar.

  12. 85

    Reus has a half-chance with the ball at his feet inside the box but Barzagli weighs in with an excellent tackle.

  13. 84

    Lahm's curling effort from out on the left is easily claimed by Buffon. It's all rather desperate from Germany at the moment and I don't think even the most optimistic of their supporters will expect a recovery now.

  14. 84

    De Rossi is booked for a foul on Schweinsteiger.

  15. 83

    Moments later Barzagli puts the ball in the net but the offside flag is raised. Germany's defence looks extremely weary and defeated.

  16. 82

    Di Natale beats the German offside trap as he casually enters the box before screwing an awful attempt into the side netting. Really should have made it three.

  17. 81

    Diamanti's driven shot from the left edge of the box goes well wide of the far post.

  18. 80

    Kroos blazes an effort high over the bar after the ball dropped for him on the edge of the box.

  19. 79

    Diamanti breaks forward for Italy on the counter but he slips inside the box and the chance to make it 3-0 is lost.

  20. 78

    A crunching tackle from De Rossi thwarts Muller's hopes of firing in a long range shot at goal.
