The Italian team of Ventura continues to consolidate. He deserved the victory in a match that began with the whistles of San Siro to the German anthem; Buffon answered with applause.

Prestigious draw to zero for the Italy of Ventura, that was to step of winning to Germany in Milan and gave signs of growth. The night began with the unacceptable whistles of many tifosi in San Siro for the German anthem, blocked once again by Buffon (who with 167 presences in the Selection reached the European record of Casillas) and his companions, who applauded visibly. Both sets (reduced by absences) left home with defenses of three: the Ventura was announced, while Löw gave the surprise starting with Hummels, Mustafi and Howedes in front of Leno.

Germany controlled the ball more in the first half (exceptional performance of Goretzka), although the Azzurra did not have trouble and was close to 1-0 with Immobile. The resumption (with many changes, including Donnarumma instead of Buffon and Götze in the Weigl) opened with two dubious arbitration decisions: a penalty not poked at Belotti and a goal nullified to Volland that seemed legal. However, the Ventura grew with the passage of time and both Immobile and himself, unstoppable, Belotti (who ran into the stick) could open the can. The marker did not move, staying in a 0-0: Löw and Ventura can be happy with their youth, Italy and Germany have a future.

In San Siro another trial of video arrest
During the San Siro friendly, another trial of the VAR, video arbitration took place: two referees, in front of the screens, communicated with the collegiate and they could help in marked cases, penalties, red cards and confusion of identity. There were two: a penalty requested by Belotti and a goal canceled Volland offside.
