Italy 2-1 Austria: Super substitutes Federico Chiesa and Matteo Pessina secure quarter final spot for Azzurri

Italy are through to the quarter-finals of Euro 2020, and it all happened in extra-time – after a gruelling 90 minutes where Austria really fought with their lives.

Chiesa broke the deadlock as he volleyed in from a tight angle his rocket goal put the Azzurri in the lead in extra-time.

Super sub Pessina scores to double Italy’s lead in extra-time.

Immobile hit the post in the first half, Arnautovic had a goal ruled out in the second, but the game came to life in extra time.

Austria kept fighting and pulled one back with Kalajdzic’s header from a corner, but it wasn’t enough in the end.

Sasa Kalajdzic’s goal was what broke the record, but I’m sure the Italians won’t mind – they’ve booked their spot in the quarter-finals regardless.

Italy are through as they’ll face either Belgium or Portugal in Munich on Friday.

They’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out who’ll they face though. Austria couldn’t cause the upset that they needed and are heading home.
