Italy have kicked Germany out of Euro 2012, winning 1:2 the second semi-final in Warsaw Thursday night.

Mario Balotelli's first-half double saw Italy through to the final of Euro 2012 as they stunned Germany in Warsaw.

Germany were hot favourites going into this semi-final but Balotelli struck twice before half-time and Germany were unable to claw their way back.

Mesut Ozil pulled a goal back from the penalty spot in injury time, but Italy deservedly held on to set up a final against Spain on Sunday.

The win continues Italy's remarkable record in major tournaments against Germany, who have failed to beat the Italians in eight attempts.
