Everything happened in the closing moments in the friendly between the Under 21 sides of Italy and Albania. Or rather, almost everything: to open the match was indeed the beautiful goal by Dimarco, Parma’s defender, who finds the advantage in the 27′. The Azzurri, before the interval lose Cutrone, forced to exit due to an ankle injury. In the second half they give way to the opponents who finally grab a draw win the 91′ with Vrioni. But the recovery time has just begun and in the swirl of changes made by coach Di Biagio there was also the substitution of Alessandro Murgia in place of Locatelli in the 55′ minute: it is the young midfielder of Lazio to be decisive, when in the 93′ he beats Selmani with a precise left. Not even a minute later was the third goal of Italy, scored by Parigini. Match that ends 3-1, a nice reaction of the Azzurrini but in the second half they could have closed the game out earlier.
