Kean enters Azzurri history books

Moise Kean has become the second-youngest player ever to score for Italy, aged 19 years and 23 days, but the 1958 record holds.

Juventus striker Kean found the back of the net in the 2-0 Euro 2020 qualifier against Finland on Saturday evening.

He only turned 19 last month and therefore put himself in the record books as the second-youngest Azzurri scorer.

This means the top spot remains in the hands of Bruno Nicolè, who was 18 years and 258 days old when he hit the back of the net for Italy in 1958.

Curiously, Nicolè bagged a brace during that 2-2 friendly draw with France on November 9, 1958, but never managed any more goals in his total eight caps.

Kean does leap ahead of Nazionale legends such as Gianni Rivera (19 years and 106 days), Carlo Rampini (19 years and 166 days) and Giuseppe Meazza (19 years and 170 days).
