International Friendlies: Italy 3-0 Uruguay

Italy capitalised on a disastrous night for Uruguay defender Jose Gimenez as they strolled to a 3-0 friendly victory on Wednesday. The Atletico Madrid defender scored a strange own goal just seven minutes into the contest in Nice and then, after Eder's late strike doubled Italy's lead, Gimenez gave away a stoppage-time penalty to allow Daniele De Rossi to add a third.

Many a striker would have been proud of Gimenez's seventh-minute finish, but unfortunately for the 22-year-old he was trying to dispossess Andrea Belotti when he sent the ball curling into the far corner of his own net.
Italy laboured to add to their lead, but after Eder's 82nd-minute goal made sure of the win, Gimenez brought down Stephan El Shaarawy in the area to complete a miserable evening.
