Baku-APA. Two brute-force goals by Mario Balotelli were enough to give Italy a 2-1 win over Germany in their Euro 2012 semifinal on Friday, setting up a final with Spain, APA reports quoting RIA Novosti.

Balotelli headed home an Antonio Cassano cross on 20 minutes before doubling the lead on 36 minutes by lashing in Riccardo Montolivo’s through ball.

Mesut Ozil scored a late penalty after Federico Balzaretti handled in the box.

Italy face Spain in Kiev in Sunday’s final after the Spaniards beat Portugal in the other semifinal on Thursday.
