|Balotelli, destroyed the Germans|
Ghanaian born Italian striker Mario Balotelli sent Germany out European Championship as his two first half goals was enough to move Italy into the final of Poland and Ukraine 2012. The 21 year old striker scored the first goal in the 20th minute of the first half and added a second in the 36th minute of the same half with a thundrous shot that found the top right corner of German post.
Faced with a third straight semi final in major competiton, the Germans fought hard to come back into the game but the Italian defence proved to tough to crack. But their persistence paid off in the injury time after an Italian defender handled the ball inside the 6 yard box to gift the German machine a consolatory goal.
The Italian victory now sets up a mouth watering final match with Spain who got the better of Portugal in a penalty shootout.The final match will takes place on Sunday in Kyiev, the Ukrainain capital city.
