With half-time upon us, Italy are currently 1-0 up against Uruguay in their friendly encounter at the Allianz stadium in Nice.

The Azzurri kicked off with several fresh young faces in their starting line-up, including an international start for 18-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

However, the Azzurri had Uruguay defender Jose Gimenez for making the breakthrough in the 7th minute – the Atletico Madrid centre-half connecting sweetly with a bouncing ball to arrow the ball past his own goalkeeper from the edge of the box…

Oh, well struck, sir. Fabulously executed.

How Andrea Belotti had the gall to celebrate that one is beyond us.
