Evani: 'Italy deserved more'

Alberico Evani believes Italy “deserved more” from their 1-1 draw with Norway, but the Under-21 side conceded “a bizarre goal.”

The Azzurrini dominated the match in Perugia, yet wasted numerous chances and hit the woodwork twice.

They also went behind when Alex Meret mis-read a Bjordal cross that went past everyone into the far bottom corner, but substitute Luca Vido scored the equaliser with a well-placed finish.

U21: Azzurrini held by Norway

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.
