Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Italy advance as Group H winners and their come-from-behind win condemns Norway to the play-offs. Alexander Tettey's opener had given the visitors a lead which would have seen them win the group, but Alessandro Florenzi and Graziano Pellè's goals - combined with Croatia's win at Malta - means Norway end third and go into Sunday's play-off draw.
  • Goal
    82
    Pellè (Italy) scores!
    Sebastian Giovinco's raking ball out to the right flank finds Alessandro Florenzi who then crosses for Pellè. The big No9 takes his time with the bouncing ball before guiding a first-time left-footed effort into the corner to give his side the lead.

  • Goal
    73
    Florenzi (Italy) scores!
    Sebastian Giovinco crosses from the left and Haitam Aleesami attempts to chest the ball back to his goalkeeper. The effort does not have enough power and allows Florenzi to nip in and poke an equaliser past Ørjan Nyland.
