They made the balanced attacks by possessing the ball most of the time and their ways were too effective. But every time, they could not bring the finish successfully and in that case, all the credits went to the ice defence of the team Greece. In the 63rd minute of the game, Italy found the net. They got a penalty and from the successful spot-kick, Jorginho who is a Brazilian by birth found the net. In the 78th minute of the game, Bernardeschi made the goal difference double and Italy took control of the game.
