Italy played against Spain in the Semi-finals of Uefa Nations League tournament. The match was interesting with a lot of action from both Spain and Italy. Luis Enrique and his boys triumphed over Spain with goals from Ferran Torres.
The two first half goals from the Manchester city striker helped Spain to qualify for the finals of Uefa Nations League. After several attempts, Italy scored only one goal throughout the whole match.
3 minutes before the end of the first half, Leonardo Bonucci was given a red card by the center referee. The Spanish team utilized their opportunities after the red card was given to score one more goal. Despite the presence of many world class players in Italy team, they could not win the match.
Poor officiating from the center referee was the main reason why Italy lost the match. Leonardo Bonucci was not supposed to be given a red card because he did not intentionally hit Sergio on his face. He contested an arial ball with Sergio Busquets and while landing, he mistakenly hit face.
