Soccer-Italy extend unbeaten run with Dutch draw but lose top spot

BERGAMO, Italy, Oct 14 (Reuters) - Italy extended their unbeaten run to 19 games with a 1-1 draw at home to the Netherlands on Wednesday, although they were knocked off the top of their Nations League group in the process.

Lorenzo Pellegrini put Italy ahead in the 16th minute but Donny van de Beek levelled nine minutes later as the Dutch ended a run of three games without scoring.

The game could have gone either way in an end-to-end second half but neither side could put the finishing touch to their approach work.

Italy, with six points from four games, were overtaken at the top of League A Group One by Poland who beat Bosnia 3-0 and have seven. The Dutch are third with five. (Reporting by Brian Homewood, editing by Ed Osmond)
