Italy thrash Liechtenstein, Pukki inspires Finland
Andrea Belotti scored twice as Italy thrashed Liechtenstein 5-0 in their Group J encounter. Italy went to half-time at 1-0 and then four goals were scored in the second half. The 2006 world champions top the group with a 100% winning record from eight games. Meanwhile, Teemu Pukki inspired Finland to a 3-0 victory against Armenia. Finland are second in Group J (15 points).
David de Gea injured in Spain's draw versus Sweden
Spain needed just a point to advance but left it until the 92nd minute as Rodrigo converted Fabian Ruiz's cutback. Earlier, Sweden took the lead early in the second half through Marcus Berg's header. However, David de Gea hobbled off injured in the second half. He is a doubt for Manchester United's Premier League game against Liverpool on Sunday with a possible hamstring injury.
