The German and Italian national teams face off today for a place in Sunday's European Championship Final against Spain (2:45pm, ESPN).

The Germans come in off a quarterfinal victory against Greece, and will have the advantage of having had two days of rest more than Italy, which needed penalty kicks to defeat England in the quarters.

Italy will be relying on playmaker Andrea Pirlo to continue his outstanding play this tournament, but Germany's midfield tandem of Mesut Ozil and Bastian Schweinsteiger will make it tough for the Italians to control the midfield like they did against England.

Enjoy the action.
