Italy Drop Points In Nations League Opener

League A

Italy 1-1 Poland

Italy failed to secure maximum points in their opening UEFA Nations League encounter, with a Chelsea midfielder coming to the rescue on the night.

The clash was also Roberto Mancini's first competitive game in charge of the Azzurri.

However, it was an Italy-based player who got on the score-sheet first, with Napoli's Piotr ZieliƄski putting Poland ahead after 40 minutes.

The Italians eventually found the equaliser with 12 minutes remaining when Jorginho slotted home a penalty to secure a point.

Mancini's men will now turn their attention to next week's Nations League tie against Portugal, who are without Cristiano Ronaldo.

League C
 
Albania 1-0 Israel
Lithuania 0-1 Serbia
Romania 0-0 Montenegro
