It was a night of curious statistics for Germany as they progressed to the Euro 2016 semi-finals at Italy’s expense in Bordeaux.
Die Mannschaft made it six penalty shootout wins in a row at major tournaments, but at the same time missed more spot kicks against the Italians than they had done in all five of their previous tie-breakers combined.
Here’s how a handful of the players from both sides reacted to the eventual 6-5 German win on social media:
Toni Kroos, who netted Germany’s first penalty, was pretty brief in his verdict.

Andre Schurrle didn’t get on to the pitch for the game, but did manage to snap a quick post-match selfie with a few of his teammates:

He was outdone by the king of the selfie however, with Lukas Podolski finding a natty hat to wear for his:
