Posted by

Italy have turned their Group B match with Albania around within the space of five minutes having gone a goal behind in the opening 30 seconds. 

A Federico Dimarco mistake gave Albania the lead after 23 seconds as the Inter star threw the ball straight to Nedim Bajrami, who punished the full-back by smashing the ball home.

However, his Inter teammates have now bailed the defender out with goals from Alessandro Bastoni and Nicolo Barella making it 2-1 to the Italians.

The first came courtesy of a corner routine which Bastoni headed in at the back post, which was the lesser of the two goals.

Barella’s strike was a beauty as the Inter midfielder smacked the ball from outside the box, leaving Thomas Strakosha rooted to the ground in the Albania goal.
