After causing copious amounts of danger with his set pieces, Tonali helped Italy to find the back of the net with a stunning curling free-kick that found the head of Pietro Pellegri.

That effort was enough to draw the game level at 1-1 following Arnaud Kalimuendo’s stunning opener for Les Bleus in the first half.

Tonali’s impressive display will certainly have left supporters in Tyneside feeling very excited indeed.

Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that a full agreement has been reached over a move for the AC Milan star after talkSPORT revealed that negotiations were advanced on Thursday morning.

With an announcement moving closer, Newcastle fans were watching rather closely as they prepared for the seemingly imminent arrival of their £60million new signing.

After starting his career with Brescia, Tonali completed a dream move to boyhood club AC Milan back in 2000.
