Spain scraped through to the Euro 2012 final after defeating Portugal in a penalty shootout on Wednesday.

With the scores locked at 0-0 after 120 minutes, Cesc Fabregas struck the winning penalty to clinch the 4-2 shootout win at Donetsk’s Donbass Arena.

Bruno Alves struck the crossbar with his penalty attempt that ultimately proved costly for the Portuguese.

Both Spain’s Xabi Alonso and Portugal’s Joao Moutinho had their opening penalties saved before the sides traded goals.

Alves failed to convert with the score at 3-2, allowing Fabregas to send Spain through to their third straight final at a major international tournament.

Spain will meet either Germany or Italy in the final at Kiev’s Olympic Stadium on Sunday.
