Player of the Match – Lautaro Martinez
The Argentinian forward was paired with Italian youngster Andrea Pinamonti but he was clearly the dominant force in attack. He gave Zebrette defender Rodrigo Becao plenty of headaches, set up the opening goal for Ashley Young, and then he found the back of the net in the second half.
