Jorginho Penalty Spares Italy’s Blushes.

Italy continued their 100 per cent record in Euro 2020 qualifying as Jorginho’s late penalty secured a 2-1 win over Finland at Tammela Stadion on Sunday.The hosts had looked like they would gain a vital point after Teemu Pukki cancelled out Ciro Immobile’s header from the penalty spot in the 72nd minute.Chelsea midfielder Jorginho had the final say, though, slotting home from 12 yards with 11 minutes remaining.The goal means Italy have won all six of their Group J qualifiers and sit six points ahead of second-placed Finland and nine above Armenia in third.
