  • GOOOOALLL! 1-0 ITALY! After Verratti wins the wide set-piece, he takes charge over Bernardeschi to whip a low, inviting delivery towards the near post. Pessina nips in front of his marker to flick a right-footed volley towards the bottom left corner. Perhaps due to the speed of the cross or the bodies in front of Ward’s goal, the goalkeeper can’t reach the effort and Pessina opens the scoring for Mancini’s side!

  • Allen bundles through the back of Belotti and becomes the first name in referee Hategan’s book. More importantly, Italy get a free-kick in a central position 25 yards from goal.

  • RED CARD! Ampadu is left speechless as referee Hategan doesn’t hesitate and brandishes a red card. The centre-back smashed into a late tackle on Bernardeschi, perhaps catching him slightly high and standing on his ankle. Nevertheless, it looks a harsh decision but, despite this, VAR checks and sticks with the referee’s original decision.

  • Page throws caution to the wind as he sends on forward Moore for midfielder Morrell. The visitors need a goal to secure a second-place finish, so could Moore be the man to find that for them?
