  14. 119

    Nocerino controls Maggio's switched ball as the Italians probe before Montolivo's drive is well wide of Hart's goal. Goal-kick to England with penalties looming.

  15. 117

    Diamanti's corner is comfortably behind goal and a few more minutes plod by goalless which is a huge boost for England right now as Italy continue their onslaught.

  16. 116

    Marchisio stops Rooney as Italy run England ragged all around the park, with the Lions growing weary with just five minutes left to hold on.

  17. 115

    Italy score but it's offside! Maggio crosses in from the right and as Nocerino heads into the net the flag is raised! Massive let-off for England.

  18. 114

    Another chance goes begging for Italy as Balzaretti finds Diamanti who is smartly closed down by Gerrard, forcing the forward to balloon his effort over.

  19. 113

    Maggio looks to fire through Cole but hits the full-back straight on, with England struggling to get out of their half again now.

  20. 112

    Balotelli takes the free-kick away from Pirlo, and it's more like a goal-kick as Pirlo looks away in disgust.
