Germany Beat Italy After Miserable, Awful PK Shootout

A mostly-uninspired Germany-Italy quarterfinal devolved to a terrible penalty shootout, one finally and mercifully won by Germany after Matteo Darmian became the last of many Italians to choke. He only ever approached the ball thanks to fuckups by Müller, Özil, and Schweinsteiger that forced PK overtime.

Thankfully, this one is over. We get France-Iceland tomorrow.
