Chelsea wing-back Davide Zappacosta played almost an hour in Italy’s home draw against the Dutch at Allianz Stadium in Turin last night. Valencia striker Simone Zaza opened the scoring in the first half well assisted by Federico Chiesta from the right flank.
Former Chelsea youngster Nathan Ake found a vital equalizer with just 2 minutes left to go, after Domenico Criscito was shown a red card for an alleged last man foul.
Zappacosta made 35 appearances with Chelsea this season after joining the club from Torino FC on Deadline Day. The 25-year-old played three more games in August as he faced Trapani, Bologna and Sassuolo with the Serie A side before a move to the Premier League giants was finalized.
Willian and Cesar Azpilicueta will face respectively Croatia (3PM BST) and Switzerland (8PM BST) today.
