BERN, Switzerland—Phil Jagielkas first international goal and a late strike
from Jermain Defoe helped England beat Italy 2-1 on Wednesday in a friendly
rematch of their European Championship quarterfinal. Aldon Smith Super bowl Jersey . Italy coach
Cesare Prandelli, whose side beat England on penalties at Euro 2012 in June,
opted for youth for the match in Switzerland. But it was one of the old guard
who gave the Azzurri the lead in the 15th minute when Daniele De Rossi headed in
a corner. Jagielka levelled for England in similar circumstances shortly before
the half hour mark and Defoe struck the winner on the break in the 79th minute.
Both sides were much changed from the European Championship match, which Italy
won en route to the final, where it lost 4-0 to Spain. Ashley Young was the only
survivor from the England side which started that match, while Ignazio Abate,
Federico Balzaretti and De Rossi were the only players to feature in both
starting lineups for Italy. “It gave us a chance to see so many new players,”
England coach Roy Hodgson said. “It was great to give the senior players a rest
and blood so many new players, or players who didnt get the chance before, and I
thought they answered the challenge in the best possible way. “There was not a
lot different from what we were trying to do in the Euros, but maybe tonight we
showed a little bit more composure on the ball and managed to pass it a bit
better.” Hodgson handed debuts to Birmingham goalkeeper Jack Butland and
Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley, who both started for England, as
well as bringing on Jack Ruddy, Jake Livermore and Ryan Bertrand in the second
half for their first international appearances. It is a remarkable rise for
Butland, who becomes Englands youngest ever goalkeeper. The 19-year-olds only
senior experience at club level is the 24 games he played on loan for Cheltenham
in the fourth tier of English football last season. Manchester City striker
Mario Balotelli pulled out of the Italy squad on Monday with conjunctivitis,
meaning uncapped Stephan El Shaarawy and Mattia Destro started up front for the
Azzurri. “It was an unfair defeat,” Prandelli said. “But it was important for me
to examine and evaluate individual players. I saw several interesting and
important players. “We have good alternatives and Im happy because it wasnt an
easy game. Some youngster are already ready, others need to play more during the
league. For example, Destro was a key player last season and for because of that
experience hes ahead in respect to others who are talented but need to play more
consistently with their clubs.” Destro looked eager to stake his claim for a
permanent place and almost opened the scoring immediately when he won a corner,
which Antonio Nocerino headed narrowly wide. Englands first opportunity came in
the 10th minute when Andy Carroll got on the end of Frank Lampards corner but he
could not keep his header down. Butland was called into action for the first
time in the 15th minute when he reacted swiftly to turn aside Alessandro
Diamantis curling free-kick which flicked off the head of Leighton Baines.
However, from the resulting corner, Italy went in front when De Rossi headed in
Diamantis cross. It was the Roma midfielders 78th game for the Azzurri. Destro
almost immediately doubled Italys lead but he headed straight at Butland.
England went close to levelling in the 21st minute when Adam Johnsons feint
wrongfooted Balzaretti, but Italy goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu got down well to
save. Hodgsons team did level six minutes later thanks to Jagielkas diving
header to meet Frank Lampards corner. Lampard almost got on the scoresheet
himself just before halftime when his free kick scraped the top of the crossbar.
Italy also went close moments later when Abates shot flew across the face of
goal from a tight angle. Destro again went close 10 minutes after the break but
substitute goalkeeper John Ruddy produced a superb save to prevent the ball from
going into the bottom left corner from close range. The Roma striker was so
certain of scoring that he already had his arms up in celebration. Italy was
again in control and Federico Peluso almost scored minutes later but he fired
into the sidenetting. Joel Lescott should have put England in front during a
goalmouth tussle with Peluso in the 73rd minute, only for Sirigu to make a save
on the line. The rebound ricocheted off Lescotts knee and Pelusos head before
crashing off the post. Ruddy produced another excellent save to deny Marco
Verratti before Defoe scored a curling 20-meter shot following a swift
counterattack. Defoe almost doubled his tally minutes later, only narrowly
missing the target. It was Italys fourth straight friendly loss. Jerry Rice Jersey . Veteran Byron Leftwich

opening set. She was 5-3 up in the second set against the second-seeded
