It was a very special night for Rafael Toloi and Matteo Pessina who played with the Italy squad in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifiers.
Rafael Toloi not only made his official debut with the Azzurri shirt, he actually did so by playing as a starter in the match that Italy won 2-0 over Lithuania in Vilnius. Rafael completed 90 minutes in the victory.
Matteo Pessina picked up his fourth appearance instead, the first as a starter.
Another 63 minutes with the blue shirt for him.
Congrats, Rafael! Congrats, Matteo!
