Spain secured a place in the last 16 of Euro 2024 as a Riccardo Calafiori own goal in the second half gave them a 1-0 win over Italy on Thursday.

The result means the three-time European champions have clinched top spot in Group B with a game to spare, while Italy will join them in qualifying as long as they avoid defeat in their next match against Croatia on Monday.
