Antonio Conte's Italy masterplan sees off Spain with high pressing

The FC crew preview the match between Italy and Germany in the quarterfinals of the European championship.
ESPN FC's Taylor Twellman and Craig Burley discuss Italy's 2-0 win over Spain in the round of 16.

Antonio Conte devised another masterplan to dump Spain out of Euro 2016 on Monday.

If teams tend to reflect the mentality of their coaches, Italy showed all the qualities that have made the former Juventus boss so successful: relentless intensity, faultless concentration and a strategic nous that appears to be above that of any other side at the tournament.

Vicente del Bosque can't say he wasn't warned. Earlier, Xavi had pointed out that Spain tend to struggle to press high when facing teams playing...

Croatia exploit wing weakness of Spain as they counter possession game

Roberto Martinez and Vincent Kompany break down what went wrong for Spain in their 2-1 defeat to Croatia.
The most striking images from the Euro's matchday 12 , with Germany and Poland getting 1-0 wins, and Croatia stunning Spain.

A sparkling Croatia side punished error-prone Spain through quick transitions and efficient wide play to set the defending champions on a collision course with some of the tournament heavyweights. The Spaniards seemed to be coasting to group victory at 1-0 up, but surprising defensive lapses let Croatia reply twice to grab top spot.

Few saw this coming. Spain had delivered two convincing wins and had neither dropped points nor conceded a goal in 10 competitive matches. Vicente del Bosque also kept...

Super-subs are proving their worth at drama-filled European Championship

England manager Roy Hodgson praises substitutes Daniel Sturridge and Jamie Vardy following their come-from-behind win over Wales.

The recent history of the European Championship is based heavily around substitutes.

Super-sub Oliver Bierhoff changed the Euro 96 final, turning a 1-0 Czech Republic lead into a 2-1 Germany victory. Four years later, two substitutes did something similar for France against Italy, with Sylvain Wiltord and David Trezeguet scoring the goals -- the latter assisted by the third sub, Robert Pires -- to win the title for France. In Euro 2012, meanwhile, Spanish duo Fernando Torres and Juan Mata came...

France and Switzerland play safety first in order to get draw required

Safety-first tactics prevailed in the 0-0 draw between France and Switzerland on Sunday night as both sides got the point they wanted. Didier Deschamps knew a draw would put the hosts top of Group A, while Vladimir Petkovic could seal passage to the round of 16 with the same result, and so neither manager risked too much in the closing stages.

There were further factors that made this a likely goalless draw. Deschamps made five changes among his front six from the Albania game, thus compromising...

England struggle to create chances despite win over Wales

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner reveals his player ratings for England in their win over Wales.
Roberto Martinez and Vincent Kompany praise Roy Hodgson for his substitutions.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley reacts to England's win over Wales at Euro 2016.
The FC crew answer your tweets on Wayne Rooney's performance against Wales and Brian McBride's cameo on a video game cover.

Roy Hodgson was reminded of the fine line between success and failure in the victory over Wales on Thursday.

Having observed a plodding first-half display that saw them trailing to a Gareth Bale free kick at the break, the England boss introduced Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge, who scored the goals to secure a 2-1 win, leaving the headline writers to credit adventurous tactics and bold substitutions.

Wales boss Chris Coleman knew the verdict could so easily have been different and sounded annoyed...

Antonio Conte's tactical masterclass as Italy outwit Belgium at Euro 2016

Belgium failed to deliver in their Euro 2016 opener as they were outwitted by Italy.

Antonio Conte delivered the tactical masterclass of Euro 2016 so far to help Italy outwit Belgium on Monday night. Scepticism has long surrounded what some feel is the worst Azzurri squad in decades, but superior organisation and shrewd strategy underpinned a strong defensive display that quelled the underwhelming stars of Belgium's so-called "Golden generation".

The Italian lineup was not a glitzy one, with Conte using a workmanlike midfield five in front of three robust centre-backs. They alternated...
