Marco Parolo felt the 3-1 defeat to France “did not accurately reflect” Italy’s performance.
Graziano Pellè had equalised after an Anthony Martial opener, but Olivier Giroud and Layvin Kurzawa made the most of defensive errors.
“It was a bit of an unfair result, even though France are strong,” Lazio midfielder Parolo told Rai Sport.
“We had our chances too, the difference is that they scored and we did not, which is what counts in football.
“I think the 3-1 result did not accurately reflect what happened over the course of the whole game.”
