Italy striker Ciro Immobile rolled around in the penalty area apparently injured before springing back to his feet when Nicolò Barella scored against Belgium.

Roberto Mancini’s side won 2-1 in Friday night’s Euro 2020 quarter-final match at the Allianz Arena to book a date with Spain in the semis.


Inter midfielder Barella opened the scoring in the 31st minute while Lazio’s Immobile was squirming on the turf, seemingly in pain.

As the ball hit the back of the net and his teammates wheeled away in celebration, he bounced back upright and joined in with the joyous scenes.

Lorenzo Insigne made it 2-0 with a spectacular effort before Romelu Lukaku pulled one back from the penalty spot.
