Two World Best Goalkeepers Could Not Stop A Penalty Kick,As Spain Beats Italy In Confed Cup
The World Cup holder against the five-time world champion. The two-time European winners against the tournament host. Spain's passing wizards vs. Brazil's new star, Neymar.
Spain came through an exhausting scoreless 120 minutes and then a penalty-kick shootout 7-6 over Italy in the semifinal Thursday and will face Brazil in Rio de Janeiro's Maracana Stadium on Sunday to cap the World Cup warm-up tournament.
''I think everybody was waiting for this Confederations Cup final to be Spain vs. Brazil,'' Spain captain Iker Casillas said. ''I think the two teams that deserve to play the final are actually playing it.''
Jesus Navas scored the decisive penalty kick after a draining match made more difficult by heat and thick humidity.
