The 19-year-old has also broken into the Italy team this year, scoring in back-to-back EURO 2020 qualifiers during March's worldwide break.

Bonifazi headed in a corner at the near post four minutes into the second half, and that would still have been enough for Juventus to clinch the title, but Floccari scored the victor in the 74th off Alessandro Murgia's cross.

"They all got better as the minutes passed".

Kean opened after half an hour with Joao Cancelo pushing through the right with his shot going wide before the teenager stuck out his foot to redirect the ball home.
