2 - 0
Spain
G. Chiellini 33'
G. Pellè 90'+1'
...
For Spain their campaign comes to a disappointing but justifiable end. The Italians never for once looked like they were going to lose this game as La Roja failed to get their passing game going 
...
Germany have never beaten Italy in a major competition. Conte will have the advantage in the next round
...
THATS IT!! Italy will face Germany in the Quarter Finals! The holders are out!!
...
93' Conte is over the moon! He has some serious hang time as he jumps on the roof of the dugout!!
...
92' Well everybody in white pushed forward and Spain got caught on the classic counter. Darmian received a brilliant diagonal from Insigne on the right and he found Pelle who just volleyed it home from close range!! 
...
90' ITS OVER!!! Pelle makes it 2-0!!! 
...
90' GREAT SAVE BUFFON!! Pique stretches to get his legs to the ball and divert it to goal but the captain dives and rescues his team
...
88' Motta receives a yellow for infringement as the Spanish players huddle around the referee complaining
...
86' Pedro almost gets on the end of a low ball and from the resulting corner he blazes a volley to Mars!
...
85' Italy win the ball in the middle of the park and Insigne drifts past one challenge and then has an effort from distance which De Gea saves. Never going to beat him from there!!
...
84'  Florenzi is now coming off to be replaced by Darmian
...
83' Juanfran makes a heroic attempt on the right flank to keep Fabregas' ball in but can't prevent the goal kick
...
82' Insigne comes on for Eder
...
81' Aduriz has not completely recovered from that fall as Pedro replaces him 
...
78' Will Spain save it? Italy looking weary now as we enter that last 10 minutes of the game
...
77' Pique has a go now!! Buffon once again to the fore. Spain making Italy nervous!
...
76' Iniesta with a thundering effort reminiscent of his strike against Chelsea but not with the same accuracy as Buffon palms it away!
...
75' Someone pour cold water on Conte quick!! He's on fire!! The manager kicks the ball away in anger as Giaccaherini fails to control the ball
...
74' OFFSIDE!! Silva plays an acute pass for Vasquez and he tips it onto the post but he is flagged offside.
...
71' RAMOS GOES WIDE!! Fabregas whips in a corner and Ramos heads wide after emerging the highest from the crowd of players. They are getting closer
...
70' GREAT ATTEMPT!! By far the best move from Spain so far. Iniesta asserting more influence in forward areas as he finds Aduriz on the edge of the box and the striker is very close to passing it into the far corner of net but is just wide
...
68' De Gea's attempted chip pass out from defence to Pique ends up in a throw for the Italians.  Sums up their current predicament really
...
67' Spain are playing right into Italy's hands so far! They have got try something different before this game slips away from them as another cross harmlessly out of play
...
65' Conte has got his tactics spot on so far but Italy have to take their chances
...
64' Eder causing all sorts of problems drawing another foul
...
61' HOW ARE ITALY STILL ONLY 1-0 AHEAD!! Pelle sprays it wide for De Sciligio who has two blue shirts to aim at and his cross finds De Gea, but it slips through his arms as well! And then somehow Spain clear their lines
...
60' Italy were on the attack once again as Pique completely blocks off Eder's run but referee waves play on! Strange decision
...
58' He picks himself up now and should be fine
...
57' Aduriz's header is over from Juanfran's cross and his fall was very heavy crashing onto the ground. He's stayed that way and the referee has stopped play
...
54' Should have been 2-0!! Eder was through on goal after Pelle put him through but in the 1-on-1 situation he was unable to slot it past De Gea!!
...
54' Pelle goes into the book for nothing. Looked like simulation from Fabregas. 
...
53' Thiago Motta comes on De Rossi
...
52' Fabregas from distance but over the bar, but Spain growing in confidence
...
51' Much better start from Spain this half. Another free kick causes slight problems in the Italian box but Buffon eventually gathers
...
49' Silva delivers and De Rossi flicks it behind for a corner! Morata then directs a close range header straight at Buffon from the corner
...
48' Handball against Bonucci! Spain free kick
...
46' And already Spain are on the back foot! First Pique just about cleared a ball behind for a corner and then Ramos had another nervy moment as Giaccherini went to ground.
...
We are back underway
...
Aduriz is coming on for Nolito A change in system. Will probably be a 4-4-2 or a 4-5-1 now in order to get at that back three who have had a very comfortable outing so far
...
Italy's pressing has not given Spain time on the ball what so ever! La Roja have not managed a single successful tackle so far. Del Bosque has to fix both aspects of his team's game in his team talk
