Barcelona defender Pique slams manner of Spain Euro shootout defeat

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has hit out at the manner of Spain's shootout defeat to Italy.

Italy booked a place in the UEFA Euro 2020 Final, beating Spain on penalties in the semis at Wembley Stadium.

Pique believes Italy had the edge over La Roja as they started the shootout, winning the coin toss.

“It is no coincidence that in four games at EURO 2020 and Copa America the teams that started the shootouts won," the Spain defender wrote on social media.

“The statistics say that who starts has more options and in a tournament like this and it does not seem fair to me that a coin toss makes you start with a disadvantage."
