USA 1-3 Italy Confederations Cup South Africa

Giuseppe Rossi scored two goals as Italy laboured to beat the United States who played for nearly an hour with 10 men in a lively Confederations Cup game. Ricardo Clark saw red for hacking down Gennaro Gattuso before Landon Donovan scored the opener in the 41st minute from the penalty after Giorgio Chiellini fouled Jozy Altidore.

Rossi fired in the equaliser from 30 yards before Daniele De Rossi stretched the lead with another long-range shot. Charlie Davies almost nodded in for the US before Rossi cracked in the third during stoppage time.
