Khedira and Ozil were eliminated from the Euro 2012 with Germany after losing 2-1 to Italy. Both Madridistas played key roles in the clash and were starters. Both Italian strikes were tallied by Balotelli, while Ozil netted a penalty in injury time. Italy will face the Spain of Xabi Alonso, Ramos, Casillas, Arbeloa and Albiol in Sunday's Kiev final.
