Italy continued their 100 per cent start to World Cup qualifying as Stefano Sensi and Ciro Immobile sealed a 2-0 win over Lithuania.
With main rivals Switzerland not in action on Wednesday, Roberto Mancini’s side capitalised to take a three-point lead at the top of Group C.
Sensi’s 47th-minute effort put them ahead, with Immobile, who had squandered several gilt-edged chances, scoring a penalty with the final kick of the game.
Immobile’s previous profligacy would have proved costly if not for Gianluigi Donnarumma, Italy’s goalkeeper producing a fantastic save from Tautvydas Eliosius to set the stage for the Lazio forward to make amends from the spot late on.
