World Champions Germany defeated Italy 6-5 on penalties to advance to the Euro 2016 semifinals on Saturday. This was the first time the German had beaten Italians in a major tournament. It was an enthralling penalty shootout with Simeone Zaza's penalty specifically standing out.
The Italian forward was brought on at the end of the extra time just to take part in the penalty shootout, though Antonio Conte didn't expect this result to come out.
The 25-year-old striker missed the penalty, but it was his run-up before he struck the ball that made him famous.

This from Zaza has to be one of the worst penalties ever at a major tournament! https://t.co/F0STwUSols
