Former Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo has praised Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma after the Italians defeated Spain in Tuesday’s Euro 2020 semi-final.
At Wembley Stadium, the Azzurri defeated La Roja 4-2 on penalties.
After extra time, the game was deadlocked 1-1, and only spot kicks could separate the two sides.
After Dani Olmo’s shot went over the crossbar, Donnarumma saved Morata’s attempt.
“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.
