|(Grosso of Italy scores)|
The next part of the semi-final was to play two fifteen halfs. Up to the last few minutes, there was still no score.
But some pinpoint passing from an Italian forward to Fabio Grosso finally broke through the goalkeeping skills of one of the best goalies in the soccer world, Germany's Jens Lehmann. With only minutes to go before the dreaded penalty kicks, Italians everywhere in the world were cheering as that goal basically sent them to the final. For good measure, another Italian goal went in, as the Germans seemed to have lost the morale at that late point.
If I were to bet, it would be on France, but it only takes one goal, so it's still anyone's prize right now.
