Italy and Germany settled for a 1-1 draw after a tightly contested Nations League encounter. Lorenzo Pellegrini stunned in the Germans in the 70th minute with a well taken goal. But it took just minutes for Joshua Kimmich to equalise with a wonderful strike.
Goal! Italy 1-1 Germany
Hoffman digs a cross towards Werner with it eventually falling to Kimmich who smashes home from close range!
Goal! Italy 1-0 Germany
Pellegrini scores! No fear from the 18-year-old, as he runs at Kehrer down the right and powers a glorious cross across the face of goal, which Pellegrini can tap home from close range!
The visitors get us back underway!
Half-time is called bang on 45 minutes, with Italy probably the happier of the two sides.
Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry have had chances, but Italy have looked dangerous when winning the ball high up the pitches.
And so it begins here in Bologna!
The European Champions came up short in the Finalissima at the weekend, and have made plenty of changes for today’s game.
Plenty of familiar faces on show for Germany!
