EURO 2020 : Fans in Rome watch Italy beat Belgium 2-1 to advance to semi-finals

Fans in Rome reacted to Italy advancing to the semi-finals of Euro 2020, after edging Belgium 2-1 in a hotly contested quarter-final game on Friday. Nicolo Barella and Lorenzo Insigne scored a goal each on Friday. Romelu Lukaku kept his team in the game with a penalty right before halftime but the Belgians missed further chances to equalize in the second half as Italy’s defenders celebrated their stops like the offense celebrated the goals. Barella put Italy in the lead in the 31st minute when Jan Vertonghen failed to properly clear the ball. Marco Verratti passed to Barella, who eluded two Belgium defenders before sending it in off the far post. Insigne got the second in the 44th when he put a curling shot inside the far top corner after skipping past one defender and facing two more. Belgium got its penalty when Giovanni Di Lorenzo pushed Jeremy Doku shortly before halftime. Lukaku then made it 2-1 by sending his shot down the middle. It was only the second goal Italy has conceded at the tournament. Italy will next play Spain in the semifinals on Tuesday at Wembley Stadium in London. The Spanish defeated Switzerland on penalties in St. Petersburg.
