England and Italy into extra-time


England and Italy were playing extra-time on Sunday after 90 minutes saw them locked at 0-0 in their Euro 2012 quarterfinal in Kiev as they battled for the right to face Germany.


Italy had the better of the chances - a swerving effort from Daniele de Rossi hit the post after just two minutes.


At the other end, Italy keeper Gigi Buffon then made a fine stop from Glen Johnson.


Mario Balotelli then fired a close range effort too close to Joe Hart before Wayne Rooney astutely found Manchester United teammate Danny Welbeck, who leaned into his effort and fired over.


After the restart England had a let off as Hart saved from De Rossi and Balotelli before Riccardo Montolivo put the rebound over from point blank range.


England threw on Andy Carroll and Theo Walcott for Welbeck and James Milner on the hour in an attempt to regain the initiative in the face of increasing Italian pressure but neither side could find a way through.


The winners will play the Germans in Warsaw on Thursday.
