Can you name Italy’s XI from their Euro 2000 semi-final win v Netherlands?


On June 29, 2000, Italy taught the Netherlands a thing or two about how to take a penalty with a dramatic shootout victory in the semi-final of Euro 2000.

Italy went down to 10 men after just 33 minutes but managed to take the game to penalties after seeing the Netherlands miss two spot-kicks of their own in normal time through Frank De Boer and Patrick Kluivert.

In the first shootout of that year’s tournament, Netherlands missed a further three spot-kicks, allowing Italy to snatch victory and progress to the final, where they were edged out by reigning world champions France.
