Match Commentary

93' Full time! Ladies and gentlemen, I can proudly announce that the Euro 2008 championships is off and running after a marvellous game of football - a game that this stage should produce. Two teams packed full of good players, and more importantly, with a bright, positive attitude. Let's hope for more of the same tomorrow night. See you then...
92' The final chance for Italy as Toni holds up the ball with his back to goal eight yards out, Cassano joins him but his shot is deflected just wide of the post. Corner.
91' Two minutes added...
