  • GOAL! Italy take the lead, it’s 1-0! Barella breaks the deadlock just after the half an hour mark. It comes after a long ball over the top of the Belgium defence is brought down by Immobile, but Belgium manage to get players back and seem to clear the danger. However, Vertonghen gives away possession to Veratti on the edge of the penalty area, who lays it through to Barella and he skips past a couple of defenders and then drills it into the back of the net. Great finish, but poor defending by Belgium.

  • GOAL! What a strike by Insigne to make it 2-0! The Napoli man sprints forward from deep and then cuts inside from the left wing onto his right foot and unleashes a superb curling strike, which flies straight into the top right corner of the net. Courtois had no chance of stopping that.

  • GOAL! Lukaku converts from the penalty spot and pulls one back for Belgium, it's 2-1! Di Lorenzo was the man who gave away the penalty after he brought down Doku and Lukaku made no mistakes from the spot, smashing it straight down the middle.
