Insigne rallies Italy past Bosnia to stay perfect

Insigne rallies Italy past Bosnia to stay perfect


Italy came from behind to maintain their perfect start to Euro 2020 qualifying with a 2-1 Group J win over Bosnia in Turin on Tuesday.

Roberto Mancini's Italy went into the game on the back of three consecutive victories, in which they had scored 11 times and not conceded a single goal.

However, Roma striker Edin Dzeko threatened an upset when he finished off a well-worked team move in the first half to put the visitors in front.

The hosts responded almost immediately after the break through a spectacular equaliser from Napoli's Lorenzo Insigne, who smashed in a volley from the edge of the box directly from a corner.

Insigne was involved again for the winner, teeing up Marco Verratti for the midfielder to slot a low shot into the corner with four minutes remaining.

Italy remain at the summit of the group on 12 points, with surprise package Finland their nearest challengers in second place on nine points following a 2-0 win over Liechtenstein in Vaduz.
