USA 20-24 Italy, San Jose
Italy under their newly appointed coach Conor O'Shea have managed to battle a hard-fought 24-20 victory over the United States of America in San Jose.
It was USA's Aj MacGinty, who opened the account with a penalty but was soon negated by his counterpart Carlo Canna as the scores were tied at 3-3.
However, Canna was sin-binned for an intentional knock-on and USA capitalised on it by scoring a penalty try to take the lead to 10-3.
With the Italian fly-half returning back, the Azzurris stepped up the gear with hooker Ornel Gega's try and another penalty from Canna took O'Shea's men to a slender one-point lead at the half-time.
Canna was all over USA in the second half as he kicked a drop goal and added the extras to Gega's second try to stretch the lead to eight points.
However, USA bounced back with a try from their replacement lock Tony Lamborn and a conversion from MacGinty which reduced the gap to just one-point. With both sides having all to play for, Canna scored the decisive final penalty goal which took Italy to a four-point victory over USA.
