All of Italy exhales at once after win

Italy jump started its Euro 2008 hopes with a big victory over the Ukraine on October 7th.

The pressure was mounting on Azzurri coach Roberto Donadoni to get his first win since he was hired right after the World Cup win over France. He would have to wait nearly the entire game to be rewarded for his patience.

Luca Toni phoned home when he scored a goal in the 79th minute shortly after Massimo Oddo scored a goal on a penalty kick in the 71st minute in a game played at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Toni was tackled by Andriy Rusol resulting in Oddo's PK.
Italy 2 - Ukraine 0

Italy also received a bit of help in the standings when Scotland stunned France, 1-0.
