    Riccardo Calafiori's second-half own goal earned dominant Spain a 1-0 victory over defending champions Italy on Thursday to qualify for the round of 16 of Euro 2024 as Group B winners.

    Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma kept his side in the game during the first half, tipping Pedri's header over and denying Alvaro Morata from a tight angle before producing a brilliant fingertip save from Fabian Ruiz's long-range effort.

    Winger Nico Williams, who should have scored a simple early header, tormented Italy right back Giovanni Di Lorenzo and created the winner, sending a dangerous ball across goal which Calafiori deflected into the net in the 55th minute.

    Williams almost settled the game in the 70th minute, crashing a shot against the bar, and Italy barely threatened an equaliser before a late spell of possession which Spain withstood with relative ease.
