Both forwards started the match that was lit up by a hat-trick from Saul Niguez. The midfielder struck first to put Spain ahead, only for the Italians to level shortly after Roberto Gagliardini had been sent off.
Federico Bernardeschi's equalizer was quickly wiped out by Saul who capped the win off with his third in the second half.
Spain will now meet England's conquerors, Germany, in the final.
Sandro, who has one goal in the tournament so far, has not yet had his move from Malaga to Everton ratified but there were suggestions in the media earlier today that confirmation of the deal could come within the next 24 hours.
Those have been followed, however, by a report on Spanish radio channel Onda Cero that Real Madrid have nipped in and signed him ahead of Everton having agreed terms with him.
Galacticos president Florentino Perez was quick to respond on another radio station, however, saying that any deal for Sandro agreed with Real was news to him.

I hope the rumours of Fenerbahçe wanting Mirallas are true. Koeman wants players with more productivity, so why give him another contract? Unless it means we don't have to sell him on the cheap.

I think that's exactly why Mirallas's contract was extended.

Oh yes, he doesn't run around enough; I forgot this obsession some have with physicality in football.

But, in 2 years, we will have some potential aristocrats taking us up yet another step. It will be fun!
It will all come good the first season in new stadium as we bring Champions League trophy up the river in a floodlighted classy ship and deliver it to our new home.
Meanwhile the RS will be on the steps of St George's Hall yelling "5 times" in Norwegian. The Future not the Past! (Me... 56 and still huge illogical optimist.)

Deulofeu is the kind of player we'd all hope to be signing right now, not selling,
Our U21s would get ripped apart by Spain. Full of experience at the top level. If it was up to me... and I can't understand why it isn't, I'd have the likes of Stones, Barkley and Dier in our team and get them used to winning.

Same way as the Everton hoodie works. Just pull it over your head, then slide your arms into the sleeves and pull the hood up if it rains.

48 hours left and if not hopefully the boy will be on his way back to Goodison. I just hope the boy can convince Koeman he can be part of his plans.

One is that Geri doesn't want to come back.
Two is that Messi doesn't want him back.
Those two issues would give any new manager pause. But we'll know for sure in less than 48 hours.

Deulofeu gets into some great positions but he tends to do a semi shot/cross instead of passing, rarely looks up. If he could lose that selfishness and lack of awareness from his game, he could be quality.

With £6.5m left over, mate:
Sandro £5.2m; Onyekuru £6.8m = £12m.
Cleverley £8m; Deulofeu-£10.5m = £18.5m.
Very good business indeed!
