Morata overtakes Torres and joins Ronaldo to make history with dramatic late equaliser against Italy

Alvaro Morata put his name in history books as his dramatic late equaliser against Italy saw him surpass Fernando Torres while leveling Cristiano Ronaldo for a Euros record.

Morata's stunning goal came in the 80th minute of Tuesday's Euro 2020 semi-final against Italy with the Azzurri up 1-0 thanks to a goal from Federico Chiesa.

But, after receiving a pass from Dani Olmo, Morata capped a stunning sequence with a perfect finish, making history while also sending the game to extra time.

In addition to keeping Spain's Euros hopes alive, it also saw the oft-criticised Morata move past Torres.
