Germany take on Italy on Thursday 28th June, 2012, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.

This is a clash of European footballing royalty, and with four European titles between them you know there will be as much expectation on these players as any in the Spain squad. The Italians will probably come in with the remnants of the England game still in their legs, but adrenaline and nervous energy should at least make this one competitive, and the Germans are not immune to feeling pressure of their own.

It will be fascinating to see if Joachim Low decides to alter his system to stifle Pirlo, or stick with the high-intensity game that blew the Greeks away, and I wouldn’t miss this for a big cake.
