Pelle fires Italy to 1-0 win over Scotland in friendly

VALLETTA, Malta (AP) Italy dominated against Scotland but only scraped a 1-0 win Sunday in its penultimate warmup match before the European Championship, and the Azzurri's wayward shooting will be of concern to coach Antonio Conte.

The main culprit was Emanuele Giaccherini, who missed three golden opportunities in the first half.

Graziano Pelle scored the only goal of the game shortly before the hour mark. Eder laid off a superb through ball from Daniele De Rossi and the Southampton striker curled into the right side of the net from the edge of the area.
