Croatia produced another grinding, vintage performance outlasting the Netherlands in a memorable 4-2 semifinal victory. Meanwhile, Spain needed a late goal from Joselu to get past a dangerous Italy side 2-1.0 of 1 minute, 18 secondsVolume 0%

Spain are led by new coach Luis de la Fuente, who in just his fourth game at the helm, is 90 (or 120) minutes away from the nation’s first men’s title since the 2012 Euros, where the team beat Italy 4-0 in the final.
