After being tested positive for Covid-19, Italy's boss had to self-isolate and he was not available for the match against Poland.

Italy

managed to beat

with a 2-0 result despite their boss being in quarantine. A penalty by

Jorginho

and a goal by

Berardi

sealed the victory for Italy. Another victory would guarantee a final spot for Mancini's side. Belotti said that they are all a family and dedicated the victory over Poland to their manager.

"We are like a family, so coming back here is like a father embracing his son,"

Belotti

told RAI Sport. 

"That's how we all feel when we come on international duty, we just need to look each other in the eyes to know what we're doing. 

"We dedicate this win to the coach, and also to everyone else who is self-isolating at this moment. 

"We heard from him before the game, knew how sad he felt not to be here, so the dedication is for him."
