First half goals from Ciro Immobile and Daniele De Rossi saw Italy defeat the Netherlands 2-0 in a international friendly at the Stadio Comunale San Nicola.
Antonio Conte's reign with Italy got off a to fine start, while this was also Guus Hiddink's first game in charge of the Dutch.
The Italians opened the scoring as early as the second minute, as Ciro Immobile latched onto long ball before rounding Jasper Cillessen and slotting into an empty net.
De Rossi doubled the lead minutes later from the penalty spot, after Martins Indi had brought down Simone Zaza in the box, the Dutch defender was also shown a red card for the foul.
Zaza should have added a third in the 20th minute, but the striker failed to beat on the on-rushing Cillessen, after being played in by Immobile.
Hiddink's men failed to produce a single effort on target in the opening 45 minutes, although Robin Van Persie almost pulled one back five minutes after the restart, as his strike from 18-yards out sailed inches wide of the upright.
Mattias Destro should have got the Azzuri's third in the 75th minute, but the AS Roma striker managed to head over from close range.
Conte's men were not troubled by the Dutch in the closing stages of the game, as they managed to see the rest of the game out.
