Casillas: 'Spain were lucky'

Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas confesses “we were lucky to win” after squeezing past Italy on a shoot-out.

It was all square after 120 minutes and Leonardo Bonucci ballooned a penalty over the bar in the Confederations Cup semi-final.

“Penalties are a lottery and we were lucky to win,” Casillas told reporters after the game.

“On Sunday we will play a great Brazil side. We will have to do well to win.”
