Football has just changed forever as Italy finally win a second game

When you are drawn in a group with Italy, it can seem pretty daunting.

But if you get them in the second game, they tend to play more like San Marino.

Since Euro 2000, when Italy last won the second match of a tournament, the likes of Romania, New Zealand and Costa Rica have all managed to easily gain at least a draw against them.

But against Sweden in Toulouse today, Eder finally cured Italy of second game syndrome.

The Sampdoria striker scored in the 88th minute to end 16 years of hurt.

Who knows, in this brave new world maybe Arsenal will win the league next season.
