Italy 2-0 Poland: Jorginho and Domenico Berardi strike to return Roberto Mancini’s men to the summit of their Nations League group

  • Chelsea midfielder Jorginho put Italy in front from the spot after 27 minutes
  • Poland’s Jacek Goralski was dismissed late on after picking up a second booking
  • Domenico Berardi then wrapped up the win with a confident left-foot finish 

Goals from Jorginho and Domenico Berardi saw Italy defeat 10-man Poland in the Nations League.   

The Chelsea midfielder tucked home on 27 minutes after Andrea Belotti was fouled by Grzegorz Krychowiak. 

Jorginho netted his first international goal since scoring against Armenia last November

Jacek Goralski picked up his second booking of the night after bringing down Andrea Belotti

Jacek Goralski was dismissed 13 minutes from time after bringing down Belotti and receiving a second booking. 

Berardi then made the points safe six minutes later, cutting inside onto his left foot to finish with aplomb after a neat through-ball by Lorenzo Insigne.

The win takes the Azzurri takes back to the top of their group after the Netherlands had earlier beaten Bosnia-Herzegovina thanks to an early Georginio Wijnaldum double and a second-half strike by Memphis Depay. 

Roberto Mancini’s men travel to Sarajevo to face Bosnia on Wednesday, while Poland host the Netherlands the same day.
