EURO 2012 LIVE: Spain vs. France
Question of the Day
WARSAW, POLAND (AP) - It’s Spain versus France for a place in the European Championship semifinals on Saturday _ the most anticipated match of the tournament so far. Here you’ll find the best of Saturday’s action and pre-match buildup. All times are Polish.
2243: Two goals from Xabi Alonso on his 100th appearance for Spain sealed victory for the defending champions and an all-Iberian semifinal. France created nothing going forward and is deservedly out after its first loss to Spain in seven competitive matches. Laurent Blanc’s side had just one shot on target.
Sunday will see the last of the quarterfinals, as England faces Italy in Kiev. The winner will take on Germany in the semifinals.
2235: Fulltime: Spain 2, France 0
Spain progresses to semifinals, where it will play Portugal.
2234: Pedro earns the penalty after being pushed over by Reveillere. Alonso steps up to take the spot kick and sends Lloris the wrong way. That’s Spain in the semis!
2232: GOAL! Spain 2, France 0 (Alonso)
2230: Penalty for Spain!
2225: Santi Cazorla is coming on for the final few minutes for Spain, and Andres Iniesta is making way. This is very easy for the Spanish. France is offering precious little going forward.
