Match Commentary

92' Ecuador certainly battled well on their World Cup debut, and will look to take some positives into their game against Mexico. If only Delgado had scored in the last minute...
92' Those two early goals killed the game off, and Italy can take a lot of confidence into the clash with Croatia
92' And there goes to final whistle. A very comfortable 2-0 victory for Italy
