Former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo, has singled out Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma for praise, after they saw off Spain in Tuesday’s Euro 2020 semi-final.

The Azzurris won 4-2 over La Roja on penalties at the Wembley Stadium.

The game was tied 1-1 after extra-time and both teams had to be separated by spot kicks.

Donnarumma saved Morata’s effort after Dani Olmo had sent his strike over the crossbar.

“During the penalty shootout – which is a game of chance, we must give credit to the goalkeeper.

“He was immense and his big frame – which is like that of two goalkeepers in the goalpost – made it difficult [for Spain].

“He looked solid and convincing and deservingly, he made a save and gave [his team] the victory,” Yobo said on Super Sport.
