The Italian football players advanced to the quarterfinals of the European Championship after beating Austria 2: 1 (0: 0) tonight in London after extra time. Italy had the best chances to score in the first half through Nicolas Barella in the 17th minute, when his shot Austrian goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann defended with his foot, while in the 32nd minute, Ciro Imobile hit the post with a shot from twenty meters.

In the second half, Austria could have taken the lead with a goal by Marko Arnautovic, assisted by David Alaba, but the goal was annulled due to the offside position after watching VAR.

By the end of the regular season, there were no serious opportunities on both sides, so the match went into overtime.

Italy took the lead in the 95th minute with a goal by Federico Chiesa, after a cross by Leonardo Spinacola.

Chiesa headed the ball in the penalty area, and then scored the goal with his left foot.

By the end of the first overtime, Mateo Pesina scored a goal in the 105th minute, assisted by Andrea Beloti “from the ground”.

The final result was set by Sasa Kalajdzic with his head after a cross from the corner, in the 114th minute.

In the quarterfinals of the European Championship, Italy will play against the winner of the match between Belgium and the current European champion Portugal.
