Jorginho features in Italy midfield against Ukraine

Chelsea duo Jorginho and Emerson Palmieri have been included in the shortlist to face both Ukraine (friendly match) last night and Poland (UEFA Nations League) on Sunday.

The midfielder was selected in the starting XI, playing alongside with Cagliari star Nicolò Barella and PSG maestro Marco Verratti.

Roberto Mancini‘s men managed to break the deadlock with Federico Bernardeschi from a long distance before Ruslan Malinovskiy leveled up the score later in the second half. Emerson Palmieri was an unused substitute at Stadio Luigi Ferraris in Genoa, where the game was stopped into the 43rd minute to commemorate those who died in the motorway bridge collapse on 14th August.
