Euro 2024: Spain send Germany packing, qualify for semi-finals

Spain are through to the semi-final of Euro 2024, following a dramatic 2-1 victory over Germany on Friday.

With the win, they became the first team to eliminate the hosts out of a European Championship at the quarter-final stage.

Mikel Merino’s 119th-minute header settled an epic 2-1 win over Germany in Stuttgart.

Merino, who made 25 appearances for Newcastle in the 2017/18 season, rose to meet Dani Olmo’s cross to send Spain into a semi-final against either France or Portugal on Tuesday night in Munich.

Substitute Olmo’s strike lit the blue touch paper moments into the second half after not initially being selected from the start – replacing the injured Pedri after just eight minutes.
