Roberto Mancini’s men were determined to grab victory, and end their qualification campaign by winning all 10 of their games.

Three first-half goals from Ciro Immobile, Nicolo Zaniolo and Nicolo Barella handed Italy a comfortable lead. The first two then struck again after the break as the hosts embarked on a six-goal spree to seal an unbelievable win.

So, without further ado, we give you the five talking points of Italy’s 9-1 thrashing of Armenia.
