Italy edges Belgium 2-1 to finish 3rd in Nations League

Nicolo Barella’s super strike and a penalty by Domenico Berardi proved enough to earn Italy a 2-1 win over Belgium in Turin yesterday and third place in this year’s Nations League.

It offered some consolation for the European champion, whose semifinal loss to Spain in Milan on Wednesday ended its world record 37-match unbeaten run. It returned to winning ways as Barella volleyed a poor corner clearance into the net one minute into the second half and Berardi added the second from the spot in the 65th, after Timothy Castagne had brought down Federico Chiesa. Belgium claimed a consolation in the 86th when substitute Charles De Ketelaere finished off a quick counter-attack. France and Spain were meeting in the UEFA Nations League final in Milan later yesterday.
