Germany still can't beat Italy at major event

Germany still can't beat Italy at major event

Germany still can't figure out Andrea Pirlo, and still can't beat Italy when it counts.
While Mario Balotelli scored both goals Thursday, Pirlo produced a superb performance as the Italians frustrated the Germans for the eighth time in a major tournament, winning 2-1 to reach the European Championship final.
In the 2006 World Cup semifinals against Germany, Pirlo set up the first goal in extra time of a 2-0 win over the hosts.
Germany was seeking its fourth European title with a talented but young team. It will now go home instead and hope that it will mature into a contender for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
