Saturday, July 2, Germany 1-1 Italy (Germany win 6-5 on pens)
Mesut Ozil impressed as Germany beat Italy in their Euro 2016 quarter-final in Bordeaux. The Arsenal midfielder opened the scoring after 65 minutes, sliding home Jonas Hector's low centre. That goal looked like the decider, but Leonardo Bonucci equalised from the spot after Jerome Boateng handled in the area. A tense extra-time period followed, with the match eventually going to penalties. Ozil missed his - hitting the post - but, after Matteo Darmian's effort was saved by Manuel Neuer, Jonas Hector converted the winning spot-kick in sudden death.
