Traditionally feared for its stalwart defense, Italy made three elementary errors to gift European runner-up France a 3-1 win in a friendly on Thursday.
Defender Giorgio Chiellini was to blame for France’s opening two goals, and 17-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma failed to protect his near post to let in the third on his international debut.
Anthony Martial opened the scoring and Olivier Giroud and Layvin Kurzawa also found the target for France after Graziano Pelle equalized.
FIFA used the match as an offline test of video assistance for referees, with the results to be unveiled on Friday in a news conference with FIFA President Gianni Infantino.
It was a disappointing debut for new Italy coach Gian Piero Ventura, who replaced Antonio Conte after the European Championship.
