Cesare Prandelli named a strong Italy XI as well and they took the lead through Stephan El-Shaarway before Matheiu Valbuena and Bafetimbi Gomis won the game for France.

Defender Jan Vertonghen played the full 90 minutes for Belgium as they went down 2-1 in Bucharest to Romania.

Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke got the Belgian’s goal before Romani won it through Alexandru Maxim and Gabriel Torje.
