EURO 2012 : Italy beat Germany 2-1 to reach Euro final

Mario Balotelli scored two superb goals as Italy shocked Germany to win 2-1 and reach the Euro 2012 final with Spain in Kiev.

Balotelli's two goals - the first a header, the second a fierce drive - lit up the first half in Warsaw as Italy recovered from an early German onslaught to take control in the game.

Germany desperately sought a way into the game but a 92nd-minute penalty, scored by Mesut Ozil, came too late.

The win sends Italy through to their third European Championship final, where they will start as underdogs against holders Spain.

Germany 1
(Ozil 90)
Italy 2 (Balotelli 20, 36)
