Italy and Romania held each other to a 1-1 draw in their second Euro 2008 Group B clash.

Italy should have taken the lead just before the break when a legitimate goal from Luca Toni was disallowed by referee Ovrebo.

Romania eventually broke the deadlock after 55 minutes, with Mutu taking advantage of bad defense and striking past Buffon.

But only a minute later, it was Cristian Panucci to level the score from close range after a Chiellini corner.

With ten minutes to go, Romania were handed a spot kick as Panucci pulled down Niculae, but Adrian Mutu’s attempt was blocked by goalkeeper Buffon.
