PostSubject: Italy In The Final.(Euro 2012)   Sat Jun 30, 2012 9:58 am

Italy frontman Mario
Balotelli scored an emphatic first-half double to fire the Azzurri to a
2-1 victory over Germany and into the final of Euro 2012.

The Manchester City striker is known for his unpredictability both
on and off the pitch, but while he had blown hot and cold in Poland and
Ukraine ahead of Thursday night's clash, he produced a searing
performance in Warsaw.
Balotelli got things rolling for Cesare
Prandelli's side when he headed home Antonio Cassano's cross from close
range in the 20th minute after some poor defending from the Germans.
the striker's crowning moment came 16 minutes later as he raced onto
Riccardo Montolivo's through-ball and smashed a sizzling shot past
Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.
Germany were handed a last-gasp
lifeline when the referee pointed to the penalty spot after Federico
Balzaretti's handball in second-half stoppage time and Mesut Ozil made
no mistake converting, but it was too little too late for Low's men, who
have never beaten Italy in a competitive game.
The Azzurri will now take on holders and world champions Spain in Kiev in Sunday's decider.
