Italy gets it done in Ukraine

Facing a tough crowd in Kiev and a must-win situation, the Azzurri secured three valuable points as they defeated Ukraine 2-1 on September 12.

Antonio DiNatale scored twice in the victory. The first tally gave Italy a 1-0 lead in heading into halftime. Ukraine would draw even at the 71st minute but DiNatale put the Italians on top for good with his second goal just 6 minutes later.
DiNatale, twice as nice

Italy is now in second place in group B and has a favorable schedule with the following games coming up including a key match-up with first place Scotland.
Georgia on Oct. 13 in Genova
Scotland on Nov. 17 in Glasgow
Faroe Islands on Nov. 21 in Modena

Ugh--the most difficult of games for me to watch! Love to see the Azzurri win; hate to see the Ukies lose!

You sound so conflicted!

I have the same issues when Italy has played the US and Denmark which is where my mother is from.
