(Video) This fiery attempt from Man Utd’s Matteo Darmian rattled the post during Italy v Sweden last night

The United left-back, who has found game time hard to come by at Old Trafford this season, almost became a national hero when he struck a fierce right-footed half volley onto the post after the Azzurri went behind during their World Cup qualifier against Sweden last night.

On a frustrating and ultimately disappointing night for the 2006 world champions, Darmian at left wing-back was one of the better performers on the night.

He provided Italy some much-needed width as Sweden looked to close out the game after going ahead through a deflected effort by Jakob Johansson.

His efforts weren’t enough as the Swedes came out of the first leg with a narrow 1-0 advantage, which leaves Italy needing to win the second leg by two clear goals.

Antonio Valencia-esque from the Italian, check out the effort from Darmian below –
