Commentary

That concludes our live coverage of the match, thank you very much for joining us!
Italy, runners-up at Euro 2016, will certainly be hard to beat in France. They are rock-solid at the back, but this match and the previous outing against Scotland have still not answered the questions about their attacking play, with the lack of a proven striker and creative options likely to be issues against top opposition. They now turn their attention to a mouth-watering opening match at the tournament against Belgium.
De Rossi's second-half header made that a satisfactory evening for Conte's men as they end their Euro 2016 preparation with a second straight victory. Finland did not register a shot on target and were poor opposition on the night, but Italy did what they had to do and will be pleased to have got that second goal.
FULL-TIME: Italy 2-0 Finland
That's full-time! Italy win 2-0!
CHANCE! The corner comes to nothing and Florenzi launches a rapid counterattack, setting up Immobile to fire straight at the keeper after a good first touch.
We are well into the three minutes of added time now. Finland pressing in the hope of getting a late consolation and win their third corner.
CHANCE! Pelle is desperate to make an impact in his limited time on the field. He smashes a shot well over the bar.
The match moves into stoppage time, with Italy now only moments from heading into Euro 2016 with a victory.
Interestingly, Finland have had narrowly more possession than Italy in the second half (51%), but Sirigu has gone through the match so far without a single save to make.
The match is winding down in Verona, with smiles on the Italy bench. This has been a very comfortable evening.
Parolo wins Italy's 12th corner. Bernardeschi takes it with Giaccherini off the field, but the result is the same - nothing comes of it.
A. Ogbonna
L. Bonucci
Italy
Conte's final change sees the West Ham defender brought on.
CHANCE! Florenzi's cross from the left is glanced wide by Immobile.
G. Pellè
S. Zaza
Italy
Zaza will not be able to mark his appearance with a goal as Pelle is given a late cameo.
CHANCE! Finland finally have an attempt on goal, but it is not worth waiting for as Eremenko shoots well over.
CHANCE! Cheeky effort from Zaza, who shoots wide from miles out as he attempts to catch Hradecky off his line.
BIG SAVE! Hradecky gets down to make a crucial stop from Zaza's powerful left-footed strike after he had been slipped in by Immobile.
F. Bernardeschi
A. Candreva
Italy
Great night for Candreva, who comes off with a goal and an assist to his name. The exciting Bernardeschi is on for the closing stages.
T. Lam
A. Ring
Finland
Zwolle youngster Lam has 17 minutes to make an impact.
J. Raitala
J. Uronen
Finland
The left wing-back is replaced by Raitala.
Barzagli concedes a corner, only Finland's second of the match. Sirigu is uncertain in dealing with it but the defence help him to clear.
A. Candreva
Assist
Italy
Excellent cross from Candreva, who is a candidate for man of the match now.
D. De Rossi
Goal
Italy
GOAL!!! That was coming - Italy lead 2-0. Candreva whips in a magnificent delivery from the right and De Rossi plants a header into the bottom corner. What an impact after coming off the bench only seven minutes ago!
A. Florenzi
S. El Shaarawy
Italy
Conte ringing the changes now. Florenzi replaces El Shaarawy.
CHANCE! El Shaarawy looks to be in after an excellent De Rossi pass but Arajuuri makes a magnificent saving challenge to deny him the chance to shoot.
Italy force two more corners which are dealt with by Finland. Familiar theme! Italy have now racked up 11 corners and barely threatened from any of them.
CHANCE! Italy corner again and this time it finds its way to El Shaarawy whose shot deflects wide for another corner.
S. Sturaro
E. Giaccherini
Italy
Sturaro is on for his Italy debut. A huge moment for the Juventus midfielder.
D. De Rossi
T. Motta
Italy
De Rossi is on for Motta, who was perhaps a puzzling selection based on the opposition.
CHANCE! A long period of patient passing ends with Zaza firing well over. Italy still well on top but they want a second goal. Here come Conte's first changes.
Surprisingly with an hour on the clock there has still only been one Finland change, with Conte yet to use any of his substitutes. Will he be tempted soon?
Chiellini strikes at goal from long-range but the whistle had already gone after the referee ruled he had fouled Eremenko.
Italy in full control, patiently passing and waiting for an opening. Finland still yet to have a shot!
Candreva twists and turns on the right, with his low cross-shot straight into the arms goalkeeper Hradecky.
Italy force another two corners – they are now up to seven for the match – but Finland clear on each occasion.
Candreva's cross is good, but Finland are just able to clear from a crowded box.
Some nice passing from the visitors to begin the second half. Hetemaj then wins a free-kick from Parolo which is cleared to safety by Italy.
R. Lod
T. Pukki
Finland
Pukki hardly saw the ball in the first half - let's see if Lod can have more of an impact after coming on at the break.
Finland get the second half under way!
It is hard to see Italy being pegged back based on the first half, but Conte will want to see his team kill the match off. They had to settle for a 1-0 win over Scotland last time out and need to show more cutting edge here, with only three of their 12 shots finding the target.
A very comfortable first half for Italy, who lead 1-0 thanks to Candreva's penalty after he had won the spot-kick himself on 27 minutes. It has been domination from the hosts, with Finland yet to shoot at Sirigu's goal.
HALF-TIME: Italy 1-0 Finland
That is the half-time whistle in Verona.
More patient passing from Italy as we move into that brief period of stoppage time.
The fourth official has indicated there will be one minute of additional time at the end of the half.
CHANCE! Chiellini charges forward and wins a free-kick from Eremekno 25 yards out. An odd training-ground routine eventually results in Bonucci having the chance to shoot from distance, but the centre-back fires straight at the goalkeeper.
Italy have had 10 shots (only two of which have been on target), while Finland are still to register an effort on goal. Italy have had over 70% of the possession.
Parolo wins a corner for Italy, which Giaccherini cannot get past the first man. Italy eventually work it to Zaza, who has another effort blocked.
CHANCE! El Shaarawy has a go from 25 yards, firing well over the crossbar.
Zaza has a shot blocked at the edge of the box. Still one-way traffic as we move towards half-time.
More passing play from Italy inside Finland's half, with the visitors keeping them at bay for now.
CHANCE! Italy win three corners in quick succession, with the best opening from the period of pressure going to Parolo, who flicks a header well wide from the edge of the area.
Giaccherini makes excellent ground down the left, easily beating the challenge of Ring, but Toivio makes a crucial block for Finland. 
A. Candreva
Penalty Goal
Italy
GOAL!!! Candreva takes it himself and sends Hradecky the wrong way with a calm spot-kick. Italy have a deserved lead!
PENALTY FOR ITALY!! A twisting Candreva is clipped by Hetemaj on the right-hand side of the penalty area and the hosts have a golden chance to go ahead.
Motta's throughball is too heavy for Zaza and Conte seems frustrated for the first time. Italy on top, although the score remains 0-0.
Giaccherini wins a free-kick in a threatening area and Finland can only clear it as far as Candreva, but the winger's shot deflects to safety.
CHANCE! Giaccherini blazes well over after El Shaarawy's pass gives him the chance to shoot from distance.
A rare Finland foray into Italy's half comes to nothing. The visitors are yet to register an attempt on goal.
BIG CHANCE!! Italy - who are on top and dominating possession - almost take the lead when Zaza's clever flick releases Immobile, who shoots wide with his left foot under pressure from his marker. Good link-up play from the front two.
Nervous moment for Finland as a defender sends the ball looping towards his own goal, but the offside flag had already gone up against Immobile.
CHANCE! First shot on target as Zaza works half a yard outside the penalty area and sends a left-footed shot towards goal, with Hradecky able to save comfortably.
Candreva's cross swerves towards goal, where Hradecky is able to get up and claim. Conte seems happy enough with the early stages on the sidelines, applauding Italy's efforts.
CHANCE! Another cross causes problems in the Finland defence, but Immobile completely misses the ball in his ambitious attempt to volley.
CHANCE! Immobile wins a corner for Italy, which is played to the edge of the box before eventually resulting in Giaccherini crossing for Zaza to head wide.
Italy are ranked number 12 in the world, while Finland are down in 67th position. Is there any chance of an upset this evening?
Chiellini concedes the first corner of the match at the other end, but Italy comfortably deal with it.
Chiellini is fouled by Pukki midway through the Finland half to set up a chance for the hosts to get a threatening delivery in, but Giaccherini overhits it. 
The home side are enjoying the early possession, probing inside the Finland half.
Italy get us under way. Game on!
We are ready for kick-off in Verona, with the national anthems now complete.
Midfielder Perparim Hetemaj of Chievo is the only player in the Finland squad based in Italy and he starts for the visitors.
Juve midfielder Stefano Sturaro, meanwhile, is on the bench as he continues to wait for his first cap.  
Conte shuffles his pack as Immobile and Zaza get the chance to impress in attack after Pelle and Eder started against Scotland. Buffon is rested but it is the same Juventus back three in front of his replacement, Sirigu.
FINLAND (3-5-2): Hradecky, Toivio, Arajuuri, Halsti; Arkivuo, Ring, Sparv, Hetemaj, Uronen; Eremenko, Pohjanpalo.
ITALY (3-5-2): Sirigu, Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Candreva, Parolo, Motta, Giaccherini, El Shaarawy; Zaza, Immobile.
It's time for some team news from Verona, here are how the two sides are lining up tonight:
Finland – who did not qualify for the Euros - are not to be underestimated, though, after their impressive 1-1 draw away to Belgium in their last outing. That result was even more surprising given it came after a run of four straight defeats without scoring a goal.
Italy beat Scotland 1-0 last time out, ending a four-game stretch without a victory since they sealed qualification for the Euros.
This is the last preparation match for Antonio Conte's men before their Euro 2016 campaign begins with a match against Belgium in seven days and they are looking to go into the tournament on a high.
Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Italy's international friendly against Finland from Verona.
