There were seven, now there is just one.
Cesc Fàbregas, César Azpilicueta, Pedro, Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard, and Thibaut Courtois have all been eliminated. Only Antonio Conte remains, and he faces his greatest challenge at the Euros today, against defending World Cup champions Germany.
Can he pull off another tactical masterclass as against Belgium and Spain? Can desire, teamwork, and elbow grease beat ruthless efficiency and belief? Stereotypes vs. stereotypes, but there can only be one winner!
GERMANY vs. ITALY
When: 20:00 BST; 3pm EDT
Where: Stade Matmut-Atlantique, Bordeaux
On TV: BBC One (UK); ESPN2, ESPN Deportes (USA); elsewhere
Streaming online: BBC iPlayer (UK); ESPN3 (USA)
Who/what to watch for: Germany have yet to truly impress, but have also yet to concede a goal in their four matches at Euro 2016, and made short work of a rather subpar Slovakia in the previous round. Italy have conceded just once, in the ultimately meaningless (for them) 1-0 loss to Ireland. Their Round of 16 win against Spain was perhaps the most impressive team display at the tournament. The winner of this one could very well go on to win the whole tournament.
