Italy is on course to win Nations League poule A1, which also includes Orange. The Azzurri defeated Polands attack in their own house and can finish the job against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Wednesday. Italy-Poland 2-0Orange took the lead position in the pool earlier on Sunday and had to hope for a misstep from Italy. That was not a moment: Poland — despite the presence of super striker Robert Lewandowski — had nothing to do with the team of Roberto Mancini. For a long time, the damage was limited to a rake penalty by Jorginho, which allowed Poland to hope for a point.
In the final phase, however, things went completely wrong: Jacek Góralski ran into his second yellow card and Domenico Berardi drew with a shot in the short corner for 2-0. Italy has the best papers for the Final Four: Orange at one point with nine points from five matches.
Belgium-England 2-0The Red Devils are already sure of pool profits after Sunday evening. England played against Oranje in 2019 at the Nations League final tournament, but after their visit to Leuven they can forget a second entry in the Final Four. The Red Devils had made the difference before minute 23: Youri Tielemans scored from the second line and Dries Mertens shot a free kick in. Belgium can win the last necessary point against pursuer Denmark.
Yes, yes! Dries Mertens with a beautiful free kick 🥳 Belgium on 2-0 against England 🇧🇪 #ZiggoSport #NationsLeague #BELENG pic.twitter.com/JGQTHV7tif

Denmark-Iceland 2-1Iceland seemed to lend a hand, but Denmark still won in the injury period. Chrstian Eriksen had put his team at 1-0 early in the match with a rake penalty. That seemed long enough for a victory, but Iceland fought back shortly before: Vidar Örn Kjartansson passed Frederik Rönnow, the replacement of the injured Kasper Schmeichel. In the very last minutes, however, the home team was given another penalty, after alleged hands of Hördur Björgvin Magnússon: Eriksen made his second of the evening.
