Eder opened the scoring for Antonio Conte's men and although Dmitri Nazarov's equaliser gave Italy a fright, goals from Stephan El Shaarawy and Matteo Darmian made sure of the win.

The Belgians climbed to the top of Group B following a comprehensive 4-1 rout of Andorra. Radja Nainggolan, Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard (penalty) and Laurent Depoitre found the target for the visitors, with Andorra's only reply coming from an Ildefons Lima spot-kick.
