2012 World cup winners Spain booked a date with five time World Cup winners, Brazil in the Confederation Cup finals slated for Sunday 30th at Maracana Rio de jeneiro.

Jesus Navas salvaged Spain with a crucial penalty spot kick that saw Spain edge out the Azzurri 7-6 after the match ended in a goalless draw in the normal and extra time.

The Azzurri boys were in for revenge after they were stormed 4-0 in the 2012 Euro final but this dream failed to materialize. Vicente Del Bosque's men monopolized possession but lacked a cutting edge in attack, while Italy missed numerous chances throughout as the match ended goalless.

The third and fourth placement match will see Uruguay face Italy.
