Italy were held to a friendly 1-1 draw by Ukraine on an emotional night at Sampdoria’s Stadio Luigi Ferraris which honored the victims of the bridge collapse in Genoa.
Italy took the lead when Juventus winger Federico Bernardeschi‘s powerful shot spun into the back of the net in the second half following a mistake from keeper Andriy Pyatov but Ruslan Malinovskiy equalized for Ukraine with a bouncing volley seven minutes later.
Italy’s failure to mark the occasion with a win means they have picked up just two victories in their last 12 games.
