Spain beat the defending World Champion, Italy today to advance to the semi-finals of Euro 2008. This is the first time Spain has advanced to the semi-finals in 24 years in a championship. They have been known to choke in the quarter finals but not today. They went 0-0 in regulation then 0-0 in overtime. It came down to the penalty kicks and Casillas was brilliant. Spain won the penalty kicks 4-2 and now plays Russia in the semi-finals. They beat Russia ealier in the tournament 4-1. Let's hope they can do it again. I would like to see a Spain-Germany finals.
