Spain's dramatic penalty shoot-out win means they now face Brazil on Sunday

Chelsea will have FIVE players in then Confederations Cup final on Sunday night as Spain defeated Italy in a sensational penalty shoot-out tonight in Brazil.Fernando Torres, Juan Mata and Cesar Azpilicueta of Spain will be joined by Brazil's duo of David Luiz and Oscar.Spain won in sudden death penalties 7-6 after a goalless match in 90 minutes was not added to in extra time.Italy had by far the better of the first half and should have had a couple of goals, the second half was more even, but the current World Cup and European cup holders hung on in and gradually took control. But Italy defeated well and the game headed into extra time.Spain took the game by the scruff of the neck and missed chances to see the game off.Then, during the penalty shoot-out, all first five spot kicks were perfect with Gianluca Buffon or Iker Casillas in goal standing no chance.But in the end, tension took hold of Bonucci and he skied his right-footer over the crossbar.Up stepped Manchester City's new boy Jesus Navas, who slotted home cooly to send the Spanish contingent in Fortaleza wild and the team into the final that everybody expected.
