Italy control Finland as Iceland win and Poland draw in friendlies

Italy were fully in control as they beat Finland 2-0 in Verona on Monday in their final warm-up for Euro 2016.

Antonio Candreva won and converted a penalty in the first half, coolly side-footing into the bottom right corner after being tripped by Perparim Hetemaj, who plays club football at the same stadium.

Candreva also set up Italy's second goal, with a cross which substitute Daniele De Rossi headed into the bottom right corner in the 71st minute.

De Rossi had been on the pitch for only seven minutes and had already provided an opportunity for Stephan El Shaarawy. The midfielder replaced Thiago Motta, who was jeered off the pitch.

Italy are in one of the toughest groups at Euro 2016, opening against Belgium on June 13, followed by Sweden and Ireland.

Italy defeated Finland in their final friendly before Euro 2016.

Also on Friday, Poland, playing without star striker Robert Lewandowski, wrapped up their own preparations with a 0-0 draw against Lithuania.

Euro debutants Iceland got a fine send-off with a 4-0 win over Liechtenstein.

Kolbeinn Sigthorsson, Birkir Saevarsson, Alfred Finnbogason all scored in the first half before Eidur Gudjohnsen added a fourth late on.

Vietnam scored three times in extra time to defeat Singapore in the final of the AYA Bank Cup.

After going scoreless for 90 minutes, it took just 25 seconds of extra time for the deadlock to be broken through a strike from Le Cong Vinh.

Nguyen Van Quyet and Dinh Thanh Trung then added goals to seal the 3-0 win.

Myanmar beat Hong Kong 3-0 in the third-place game.
