Italy, who are on a rebuild mode, would be happy getting a point from the match against Germany that too while going with several youngsters. Lorenzo Pellegrini scored the goal for the side after getting an assist from debutant Wilfried Gnonto in the 70th minute. However, they squandered their lead as Joshua Kimmich scored the leveler for Germany just three minutes later and the scoreline remained same for the rest of the match.
On the other hand, Hungary rode on Dominik Szoboszlai’s goal that came off penalty in the 66th minute to hand a shock defeat to the Three Lions. The Magyars are having a good run as they have won four of their last five matches.
