The Atletico Madrid man put the Azzurri ahead with a wonder strike

Italy extended their unbeaten run under manager Giampiero Ventura to nine games after a convincing 3-0 win over Uruguay on Wednesday night.

Jose Gimenez’s incredible own-goal gave the Azzurri an early lead before Eder’s late strike and a Daniele De Rossi penalty in injury time sealed a comfortable win for the Italians.

But the highlight of the evening undoubtedly came from Atletico Madrid defender Gimenez, who spectacularly volleyed the ball into his own net – much to the amusement of Andrea Belotti.
