Alvaro Morata claimed Spain deserved much more than their Euro 2020 semi-final defeat to Italy on Tuesday after the striker missed the crucial penalty in the shootout loss.

Luis Enrique's side crashed out at the last four in painful fashion via a 4-2 penalty shootout loss to the Azzurri, following a 1-1 draw at Wembley - with Morata missing his crucial sudden death penalty allowing Jorginho to net the winning spot kick from 12 yards.

The 28-year-old striker came off the substitutes' bench to score a late equaliser and force extra-time, but his shootout effort was saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma which proved to be fatal for Spain.

Morata, who opened up about him and his family receiving threats earlier in the tournament, did not refer to his penalty miss on social media after the match and only revealed his pride of being part of Luis Enrique's side.

The striker posted on Instagram: 'This group deserved more, much more. Like the whole of Spain, it was also my dream, our dream.

'I am proud to have been part of this team. To those who have believed in us, THANK YOU. Football can be very hard.'

All of Spain's newspapers on Wednesday morning maintained that Spain did not deserve to lose the final after dominating possession at Wembley.
