Italy persists in the top position in Nations League after a draw with the Netherlands

In an exciting 1-1 draw, Italy shared the glory with the Netherlands and remains on top of its Nations League group.

After Nicolo Barella found him with a great through-ball, Lorenzo Pellegrini opened the scoring with a great finish in the 16th minute.

But as Donny van de Beek’s right-footed striked from inside the box beat Gianluigi Donnarumma from close range, the home-side lead lasted less than ten minutes.

Eventually, a draw was a fair result as both teams were likely to grab all three points but were careless in front of the goal.
