Chelsea star Jorginho went close to scoring in the 1st minute of his game with Italy, who grabbed a late win against Poland in the UEFA Nations League last night in Chorzow.
The Brazilian born midfielder hit the crossbar in a game widely dominated by Roberto Mancini’s men, decided only in the stoppage time when Fiorentina full-back Cristiano Biraghi scored a crucial goal (with a dedication to former Fiorentina captain and Italy defender Davide Astori, who died aged 31 in March 2018) with a tackle from the past corner. Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri was an unused sub.
Italy avoided a disappointing relegation to the League B, while Portugal remain on top of the table with 6 points from 2 games so far. The Azzurri are currently chasing their opponents with 4 points. Poland are officially relegated with still one game in hand.
