The Italy Under-21 side wasted numerous chances, hit the woodwork twice and were held to a 1-1 friendly draw by Norway.
This was the first game for Coach Alberico Evani, who was promoted from the Under-20 side after Gigi Di Biagio took the role of Interim senior Italy boss. Davide Calabria was out injured, while Milan teammate Patrick Cutrone was bumped up to the senior side.
Benevento winger Vittorio Parigini almost scored within five minutes, his curling cross-shot from outside the box bouncing off the base of the far post.
