Penalty shoot-out details (Spain went second) 1 – Dani Olmo [missed] 2 – Gerard Moreno [scored] 3 – Thiago Alcántara [scored] 4 – Alvaro Morata [saved] This was Spain's second penalty shoot-out defeat at UEFA European Championship finals; also at Wembley against England at Euro 96 (won four). They were now the leading scorers at Euro 2020 with 13 goals, one more than Italy. Spain had won all four of their previous semi-finals at UEFA European Championship finals (1964, 1984, 2008 and 2012).
