Jorginho played 62 minutes as Italy drew 0-0 at home to Turkey on Tuesday night.

The deadlock couldn’t be broken in an equal international friendly contest at Renato Dall’Ara.

Wearing the captain’s armband for the second time in his international career, Jorginho has now made 53 appearances for Italy and ended the game with a passing accuracy of 95 percent.

“It was not easy against a well-organised side, but it was a good training session,” he said after the game. “There are still things to be improved, it is not simple, but we can do it because we’re all eager to play the way the coach asks.
