Notes

  • Buffon InjuryTen minutes into the second half Haynes is one-on-one with the Buffon who dives in bravely to take the ball. However, he gets a boot to the ribs for his trouble and has to be carried from the field surrounded by Italian photographers who come on to the pitch at every opportunity during the entire match.
