Which group was the European Championship's "group of death" again? It was not exactly the final we expected, but it is hardly shocking.
Italy had to overcome incredible adversity going into the tournament. There were many who questioned whether or not the Italians would stay in the tournament after news of another scandal broke out in Serie A.

Spain has looked very vulnerable throughout this summer's Euro, and Italy will enter the match knowing it can lift the trophy.
With legends spread all over the pitch and the reigning champs having a chance at history, this Group C rematch has the potential to be a classic.
