Manolo Gabbiadini struck in stoppage time to put the gloss on a 5-0 success for Italy against Liechtenstein in their latest FIFA World Cup qualifier.

The Azzurri took the lead after 35 minutes through Lorenzo Insigne, which lit the blue touch paper for a rout against the side bottom of Group G.

Andrea Belotti and Éder add further goals before the introduction of Gabbiadini on 75 minutes in place of Belotti.

Federico Bernardeschi then struck from distance to make it four with seven minutes remaining.

But it was to be the Saints striker Gabbiadini who had the final say, when finished superbly from Leonardo Spinazzola’s squared ball.

The result means Italy keep pace with Spain at the top of their group, with both sides on 16 points.
