Ahead of the Euro 2020 first semifinal, let’s have a look at 5 players who can play a pivotal role on the night.
Euro 2020, Italy vs Spain Live: Key Player 1
Lorenzo Insigne (Italy)
Lorenzo Insigne has emerged as Italy’s main focal point of attack in this Euro 2020.The Napoli winger curled a beautiful one past the Belgian defence speaks volumes about his calibre.
With Lorenzo Spinazzola missing out from the remainder of the tournament with an injury the left side of Italy’s attack will be completely in his control.
Euro 2020, Italy vs Spain Live: Key Player 2
Jorginho ran the show in the middle of the park as he cut off the supply to Romelu Lukaku who looked frustrated at times. The Chelsea midfielder was very tidy in possession and spread out the play with his incisive passing all over the field.
It will be an interesting battle between him and Sergio Busquets when Italy plays Spain.

Federico Chiesa (Italy)
Federico Chiesa might not find himself on the score sheet but he was a constant thorn to the Belgian backline who found it difficult to control the winger.
Spain defence hasn’t been at their best in the last few matches and Chiesa would certainly take his chances in the semifinals.

Sergio Busquets (Spain)
Sergio Busquets will not have an easy outing against the in-form Italy. The midfielder will be up against the formidable Jorginho and Marco Verratti and the battle will be won in the middle of the pitch.
Busquets’ introduction saw Spain ramping up their game and the Barcelona midfielder will play an influential role.
