Italy welcomed Liechtenstein at the Ennio Tardini stadium at Parma. The Italians thrashed their rivals 6-0 in the second round of Group J of the Eurocup qualifiers. The experienced Quagliarella, who returned to the squad after more than eight years, scored two goals and was the Man of the Match. In addition, he also became the oldest striker to swing the nets for the Italian team.

Italy absolutely dominated the match, from beginning to end. They had nearly 74% of ball possession, 40 attempts against only three from the Liechtensteiners. Summing up, It was the duel between a four-time world champion and an almost amateur team – Sorry, my dear Liechtenstein-. However, Italy realistically destroyed.

They opened the scoring with a Sensi header. Little Sensi was one of the best on the field, alongside Spinazzola and Verratti, who scored the second goal in a beautiful shot placed from the edge of the area. The experienced Fabio Quagliarella scored two goals, both on penalties shoots, after two free throws within the Liechtenstein area. In the second half, defender Kaufmann was sent off and left the way clear for a thrashing. After that, in the added time, young Kean, and striker Pavoletti completed the Italian massacre: 6-0.

Quagliarella ended up going down in history in the match! At 36 years and 54 days old, he became the oldest striker to swing the net with the Italian national team jersey. The Sampdoria striker came on the pitch at the end of the match against Finland, after a long time out of Azzurra. Before, his last time for l’Azzurra had been on November 17, 2010, in a friendly against Romania. In addition to it, he even got called up in 2015 but did not act. Quagliarella has 21 goals in 29 games for Samp in the season.

With the 6-0 win, the Italians are the leaders of Group J, with six points. Greece and Bosnia appear in second, with four points. Therefore, Liechtenstein is the bottom of the group, with no points and having conceded eight goals. Italians and Liechtensteiners are back in action for the qualifiers in June. Italy visit Greece, and Liechtenstein takes Armenia away from home.
