Italy made it two wins out of two at Euro 2016 as they secured a late victory over Sweden on Friday.

The result made it two wins out of two for the Italians as they progressed to the knockout stages in relative comfort.

They headed into the game full of confidence after their highly impressive 2-0 win over Belgium in their opening game of the tournament.

They had been dangerous throughout that win against a hugely talented Belgian side and were more than worthy of the three points.

It was a different story against Sweden though, as they failed to create much in a largely dour affair between the sides.

One man who failed to impress was Southampton striker Graziano Pelle, who did not do much during his time on the pitch.

Nonetheless, Italy secured the win in the end as Eder scored at the death to seal all three points for his country.

It may have been unconvincing, but it was another win for an Italian side that has been labelled as the worst in a number of years.
