Jan Vertongen netted a spectacular header from the centre of the box as he stooped in low and blasted the ball, giving Buffon no chance of stopping the powerful attempt. The versatile Tottenham defender latched on to Kevin de Bruyne’s delightful cross and was able to find the bottom left corner of the Italy goal.
Belgium got back in the game after Italy had taken the lead in the opening 3 minutes into the game, thanks to an early strike by Antonio Candreva who took advantage of the Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet’s poor effort.
