Manolo Gabbiadini was an unused substitute for Italy, as they drew 1-1 at home with Macedonia in World Cup qualifying.

Italy went into the match with hopes of overhauling Group G leaders all but extinguished already and second place nearly secured.

While the 1-1 draw was a disappointing result in Turin, it did seal second spot in the group and effectively guarantee that they will now advance to the play-offs to reach the 2018 finals, in Russia.

Italy led through Giorgio Chiellini’s goal five minutes before half-time, and, while that looked for a long spell as if it would be enough, Aleksandar Trajkovski struck with 13 minutes left to earn the visitors a point.
