The 9-1 scoreline was one of the biggest victories in football history, and saw Italy equal their own personal record.

The last time the Italians won by such a big margin was against the United States in an 8-0 during the 1948 Olympics.

Mancini’s side have also set a new record of 11 consecutive wins, which smashes their previous record of nine.
