Italy jostled by the Netherlands (1-1)
The Netherlands have regained some of their momentum which seemed to have left with their coach Ronald Koeman to jostle Italy (1-1), Wednesday in Bergamo during the 4th day of the League of Nations.
With this third draw in four matches, Italy, which was notably betrayed by the lack of confidence in the selection of its center-forward Ciro Immobile, slowed down a little after its brilliant qualifying for Euro-2021 (10 victories in 10 matches).
With 6 points, it leaves the first place of the group to Poland (7 pts), which beat Bosnia-Herzegovina in the other match of the group. The Netherlands are 3rd with 5 points in a group more open than ever.
England surprised by Denmark (0-1)

With this defeat, the selection to the three lions is only third in its group with 7 points, ahead of the goal difference by their evening opponents and two points by Belgium, who went to beat Icelanders in Reykjavik. (1-2), who still haven’t scored a single point.
