Morata, who had only shortly come off the bench, broke into wild celebrations.

He charged around the back of Italy’s net before yanking a television camera towards him.

Morata buried his face in the lens as teammates mobbed him.

And the Juventus star then ran to the opposite corner of the box before finishing his celebration with a trademark knee slide and arm movement.

The moment was made even more special for Morata as he bagged a bit of history.

The Chelsea flop is now Spain’s top goalscorer at the Euros, with six strikes to his name.

That’s more than the likes of David Villa, Fernando Torres and Raul.

However, Morata was unable to find a second goal as the game went to penalties.

With Spain behind 3-2 on spot kicks, with Manuel Locatelli and Dani Olmo already having missed, Morata saw Italy stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma dive to his left to stop a tame effort.

Old Chelsea team-mate Jorginho then stepped up to win it for the Italian in trademark cool style.

Roberto Mancini’s men have now booked their place in Sunday’s Euro 2020 final at Wembley.

And Italy will take on either England or Denmark after tomorrow’s second semi-final battle in London.
