Italy kept up their incredible winning streak with victory over Wales in Rome thanks to another impressive performance.
And our Man of the Match was …
He’s been out of the team through injury for the first two games and it’s safe to say they didn’t miss him.
But what a difference the Paris Saint-Germain schemer makes when he is back dictating things in the centre of the park.
Verratti seems to have that incredible knack of always knowing where to be at the right time, pouncing onto loose balls or poor passes and moving his side onwards.
Throughout this one, he did that and was also an important figure in attack too, bursting forward to send some dangerous deliveries in for his attackers.
His best of the game, a neat near post free-kick, saw him claim an assist when his pass was turned beyond Danny Ward by Matteo Pessina.
He took over the captain’s armband for the second half after Leonardo Bonucci’s exit and it was no more than he deserved.
Now that the former Pescara man is back in the side, it’ll be a brave call from Roberto Mancini to remove him.
