    • 90+3 Tha's it! Italy get the points, 1-0 thanks to the 'new' Italian Motta.
    • 81' Cesar is booked.
    • 79' Novakovic on the run but he drills one just wide.
    • 73' GOAL ITALY! And it's Thiago Motta, the naturalised Brazilian of Inter! Fantastic finish after a late run, which is exactly why they called him up. Super assist from Balzaretti too.
    • 62' A long ball from Motta causes problems as Handanovic inexplicably tries to punch it, playing his team into trouble until Cesar is fouled.
    • 56' Buffon stretches as far as a man can to deny Ljubijankic with the lobbed effort! That was the sub's first touch!
    • 53' Double save from Handanovic from Cassano and Aquilani! Corner as Italy turn the screw...
    • 52' Handanovic with another good save, from Mauri this time as the Lazio man smacks one in from range.
    • 46' The second half is underway.
    • 45' Half time and goalless in Slovenia - fairly even and with plenty of attacking intent from both sides!
    • 40' ITALY CLOSE! Cassano latches on to a floated through ball, and plays Pazzini in with a superb inviting header, but he's millimetres from the making contact with his boot.
    • 35' Almost a goal for Italy after Handanovic spills one before doing well to prevent Cassano finishing.
    • 26' GREAT SAVE BUFFON! At full stretch to tip away Koren's curling, rising drive. Super effort, super save.
    • 23' PAZZINI HITS THE POST! From a very tight angle he rattles a volley off the woodwork and away.
    • 18' Pazzini finds himself one-on-one but Cesar flies in to save the day! Corner.
    • 13' A couple of corners in a row now as Slovenia attack with width and pace.... Good stuff from the hosts, stretching Italy...
    • 6' Handanovic with a superb low save from Montolivo's fizzing drive after an excellent Italy move!
    • 1' This match in Slovenia kicks off a touch late.
    • 19:40 Reports of crowd trouble in this match... police involved...
