9. Bruno Alves (Portugal) vs Spain
UEFA Euro 2012 SemiFinal
Spain won 4-2 on penalties (0-0 a.e.t.)
The Iberian semi-final in the 2012 Euro pitted defending Champions Spain against Portugal. A tightly contested but goalless draw between the sides was to be decided on penalties. Both teams’ first takers missed and then the next 4 penalties were scored. With the 5th being scored by Ramos, Spain were leading 3-2 before Bruno Alves came to the spot.
He unleashed a powerful shot which beat Iker Casillas, who had dived in the right direction but low, but the shot bounced off the cross bar. Cesc Fabregas who slotted the 4th kick for Spain won it as Spain would progress to the final and win the Euro 2012 in convincing style.
