Against Italy on Saturday night, Germany once again prevailed in a penalties shoot-out, albeit after a few uncharacteristically poor spot-kicks of their own.

With France imperious against Iceland in the final quarter-final game, Germany’s semi-final clash with the hosts on Thursday will be an epic encounter, with more penalties a definite possibility.
