Two goals in four days. It's fair to say that Federico Bernardeschi is enjoying a great spell for Italy. After the goal scored at the Olimpico in Rome on Saturday against Greece, the Juventus number 33 repeated the feat last night in Vaduz, against Liechtenstein, opening the scoring in the 5-0 win for the Azzurri against the hosts.
Roberto Mancini's side, who have already mathematically qualified for Euro 2020, recorded their ninth consecutive victory. Andrea Belotti (2), Alessio Romagnoli and Stephan El Shaarawy scored the rest of the goals, whilst Bernardeschi remained on the pitch for 74 minutes, before being then replaced by Sandro Tonali, whilst Leonardo Bonucci came on in the 88th minute, taking over from Cristiano Biraghi.
Still in Euro 2020 qualifying Group J, there was defeat for Miralem Pjanic's Bosnia and Herzegovina, going down 2-1 to Greece in Athens, with Pjanic on the pitch for the entire match.
Yesterday, two friendly matches were played that saw two Bianconeri players taking part. Colombia, had Juan Cuadrado on the pitch for the first 45', as they lost 3-0 to Algeria in France. Meanwhile in Lima, Rodrigo Bentancur's Uruguay drew 1-1 with Peru, with Bentancur also playing the first half.
