Shortly before the interval Mauro Camoranesi almost scores, but his header fails to test Lehmann as the half ends goalless
Stunning late extra-time strikes from Fabio Grosso and Alessandro Del Piero took Italy into the World Cup final at Germany’s expense with a 2-0 win.
An absorbing semi-final seemed set for penalties until Grosso curled man of the match Andrea Pirlo’s pass past Jens Lehmann with just one minute left.
As Germany pressed for an equaliser, Del Piero then finished an Italy break with a delicate chip into the corner.
Earlier in extra-time, Lukas Podolski sent a header wide when unmarked.
