- Moise Kean hits two as European champions return to form
- Spain take lead in Group B after Sweden lose in Greece
Italy recorded their first win since being crowned European champions as Moise Kean and Giacomo Raspadori inspired a crushing 5-0 win over Lithuania to strengthen their grip on top spot in World Cup qualifying Group C.
The two 21-year-olds impressed their manager by lighting up the first half, as Kean netted twice either side of an Edgaras Utkus own goal and Raspadori, making his first start for his country, also scored. “Everything is in their heads and their feet. If they are committed and work seriously, they have great futures. But it is up to them,” said Roberto Mancini.
