    • 90' The final whistle goes, a comfortable win for Italy who show their striking prowess with Rossi, Cassano and Pazzini all on target.
    • 90' Just wide by GIovinco, who came on as a late sub, and now his cross from the right is flapped at by the keeper.
    • 88' Buffon gets down to hold on to a long-range effort from Vunk.
    • 87' Flagrant dive by Saag in the box but he gets nothing, not even the deserved booking.
    • 85' Pazzini attacks a cross from the left but pokes well wide. Foot a bit high too.
    • 70' Another chance for Pazzini immediately, knocking Balzaretti's low cross from the left wide as he slid in. Had he got the contact right it was in - open net with the keeper stranded near post.
    • 68' 3-0 Italy, no surprises there. Pazzini scores minutes after coming on. Montolivo with the pass. That's his second goal for Italy.
    • 66' Pazzini's first act is a mazy run and shot, deflected wide for a corner. That is half cleared and Nocerino has a pop but tipped wide for another corner.
    • 64' Cassano goes off to rapturous applause - Pazzini on in his place as a Pirlo free-kick is kept out by the post and hand of the keeper.
    • 59' Free-kick to Italy but Cassano is pushing in the box.
    • 54' As you'd expect Italy with all the pressure still. Vunk is booked for the visitors.
    • 46' The second half is underway in Italy.
    • 45' Half-time and Italy lead 2-0. All very comfortable.
    • 44' Chiellini can't believe he has conceded a corner on the Estonia right. Good pressure from the visitors but it seems the hosts are well in charge.
    • 39' Cassano makes it 2-0 to Italy, somehow digging out a snap finish low inside the far post with the defender close to him.
    • 31' Rossi hits the bar! Super effort from the Villarreal striker, from the edge of the box and off the underside of the crossbar but bouncing clear.
    • 25' Aquilani has come off injured for Italy. Nocerino on.
    • 20' NO MISTAKE THIS TIME! 1-0 Italy and Rossi makes up for the miss with a superb finish from a tight angle on the left. The keeper may have done better at the near post though.
    • 19' Bad miss from Rossi! He did the hard part to race one-on-one, dribbling through the defence with ease, but fires straight at the keeper who saves well.
    • 16' Another corner to Italy, Maggio again getting forward but again delaying the cross, allowing a block. Only a matter of time surely...
    • 14' Italy go close twice, first as the corner is hacked away by a defender off the line and then when Aquilani heads inside the near post, the keeper managing to claw it out!
    • 13' Cassano gets in behind and appears to be offside but no flag and the keeper does well at his near post. Corner.
    • 9' Loads of space for the right back Maggio overlapping getting forward but his cross is beyond Cassano, with
    • 6' Almost a super solo goal from Cassano as he wriggles in down the right and tries to lob the keeper, who claims.
    • 3' Italy, unsurprisingly, making the early inroads here, Balzaretti getting forward a fair bit...
    • 1' Italy-Estonia gets underway.
    • 18:55 TEAMS - Italy: Buffon, Ranocchia, Maggio, Chiellini, Balzaretti, Marchisio, Aquilani, Montolivo, Pirlo, Rossi, Cassano; Subs: Viviano, Gamberini, Pazzini, Giovinco, Gilardino, Cassani, Nocerino /// Estonia: Pareiko, Klavan, Jaager, Teniste, Rahn, Piiroja, Kruglov, Puri, Kink, Vunk, Zenjov; Subs: Londak, Mosnikov, Kams, Ahjupera, Barengrub, Saag, Stepanov /// Referee: Alexandru Dan Tudor (Romania)
