In a game with major interest for Irish fans, Italy beat Belgium 2-0.
The Italians took a 1-0 first half lead through Emanuele Giaccherini and it would remain so until moments from the end when Graziano Pelle added a second.
Just 15 minutes from time - with the game still in the balance - Italy's Brazilian-born striker Eder ensured that Belgium would not get a chance to equalise.
After an Italian corner, Belgium broke through Dries Mertens. The forward would not get far, though the ball would travel a considerable distance due to the cynicism of Eder.
He might not have been born in Italy but he has certainly adopted one of the characteristics of their football.
Eder received a yellow card from the referee and was immediately substituted, no doubt receiving a nod of approval from Antonio Conte en route to the bench.
