De Rossi: Match-winner

Daniele De Rossi struck twice to give World Cup holders Italy a 2-0 win over Georgia in their Group Seven qualifier.

The Roma midfielder netted a goal in each half to make it two wins out of two for Marcelo Lippi's men.

De Rossi broke the deadlock on 17 minutes with a superb striker from 30 yards out past Georgia keeper George Loria.

De Rossi won the match for the reigning World Cup holders with a thunder bolt from 30 yards in the first half and then he latched onto a clever pass from substitute Alessandro Del Piero a minute from time to secure the three points.

Georgia wasted a great chance to draw level on 26 minutes when Leven Mchedlidze missed a gilt-edged opportunity.

Italy made the game safe in the final minute when substitute Alessandro Del Piero set up De Rossi to score from close-range.
