Germany vs Italy Highlights: Balotelli 2 Goals Wins it for Italy to reach Euro 2012 Finals

Mario Balotelli came up a hero for Italy in providing two winning goals as they defeated Germany that clinch the Italians to the Euro 2012 finals. ExtenZe

Germany vs Italy highlights are full of action way better than scoreless Spain vs Portugal game highlights yesterday. Germany came into this game as favourites to win the Euro 2012 title since the beginning but Italy exceeded all expectations by reaching the final with their strong and aggressive style of play.

Germany vs Italy highlights goal at 20-minute when Cassano chips cross pass from the left side that finds Balotelli for a header to open 1-0 lead for Italy.

With just 16 minutes after the goal, the 21-year old came up big again from the counter attack by Italy in a break away ball to the middle finds Balotelli as he slammed the ball past Nueur to put the Italians in comfortable 2-0 lead. Germany on firing from all cylinders but just cannot convert a goal except the penalty shot goal by Ozil to make it 2-1 for Italy which is too late at 90+2 minute.

Germany has 9 shot attempts which is a lot of chances but didn't come their way. Great Germany vs Italy highlights came at 6-minute when Mats Hummels guides the ball past Italian goal kepper Buffon but Pirlo blocks the ball right on the line.

Mario Gomez was silent in the game but Toni Kroos has two chances to score same as Ozil Lahm and Khedira all to no avail. Germany is disperate to score in the second half when Reus came in and has his strike saved by Buffon as well. You have to give credit to pesky Italian defense for chasing the ball and throw it back to the Germans.

Italy will face Spain for the Euro 2012 Finals showdown on Sunday.
