  • A yellow card has been shown very early on here, after Carp dived into a sliding challenge with Locatelli and caught the midfielder high on the leg. A poor and dangerous challenge to make.

    MDA - Catalin Carp
    3'
  • GOOOAAALLL! Italy take the lead, it's 1-0! Bonaventura whips in the resulting corner following the El Shaarawy chance and Cristante meets it at the near post and he powers it past Koselev, who seemed to be caught be surprise as he gets a hand to it, but cannot stop the ball from crossing the line.

  • GOOOAAALLL! Italy have a third, it's 3-0! The Italians have had a lot of joy in behind Moldova and they managed to exploit them again there, with El Shawaary sprinting through on goal and then poking the ball past Koselev from a tight angle.

  • GOOOAAALLL! It's 4-0! An unfortunate own goal by Posmac as he tried to clear the danger. A deep ball came over the top of the Moldova defence and Caputo controlled it, but just before he went to strike it, Posmac tried to smash it behind his goal, but he gets it all wrong and it flies past his own keeper and into the back of the net.

  • GOOOAAALLL! El Shaarawy makes it 5-0 just before the break! Lazzari is played through down the right-wing and he chips the keeper from a tight angle, it doesn't quite have enough pace or direction on it, so El Shaarawy dives in at the far post and powers it into the back of the net.
