Matteo Politano had “an unforgettable evening” after scoring the last-gasp winner over the USA, his first goal for Italy.
The Inter forward came off the bench and found the back of the net at the 94th minute of the friendly in Genk.
“It’s an unforgettable evening, I am so happy for the goal and the victory. We dominated the game, but struggled to break through and fortunately we got there in the end,” he told Rai Sport.
“We’ve been a little unlucky, but must continue with this style of football, because we are creating so many chances and eventually we will score more of them.
“It’s up to me to be ready when called upon so that I can deliver when needed, both for Italy and Inter.
“The group unity is our strength and we never gave in, pushing hard until the end.”
