Spain Advances to Final with Brazil in Confederation Cup

Spain edged into the Confederations Cup final with a dramatic 7-6 win on penalties against Italy in Fortaleza.

The Italians - humbled by Spain in last year's European Championship final - were out for both revenge and a Maracana showdown with hosts Brazil, but they failed to turn their dominance over 90 minutes into goals.

A weary Spain side waited until extra time to turn the screw but they still needed Leonardo Bonucci to miss one of 14 spot-kicks between the nations before sealing their place in Sunday's final through Jesus Navas.
