Nations League wrap: Late goal steals win for Italy

The Azzurri ended a five-match winless streak on Sunday with a last-gasp 1-0 triumph away to Poland in the UEFA Nations League to keep their distant hopes of a spot in next year's finals alive.

Poland will finish bottom of Group A3 and face relegation from the top tier of the Nations League.

Italy were completely dominant in the first half but somehow failed to take the lead, with Jorginho and Lorenzo Insigne both hitting the crossbar.

But Biraghi pounced on a flick-on to poke Italy in front and score his first worldwide goal with seconds to go.

Italy's Cristiano Biraghi honoured his former teammate and captain, the late Davide Astori, after scoring a last-minute victor for the Azzurri against Poland.
