Verratti was credited with an assist on Claudio Marchisio's 35th minute goal during Italy's 2-1 win over England in their opening match of the World Cup on Saturday.

Verratti appeared to be playing the ball to Andrea Pirlo, but the Juve midfielder stepped over the ball, leaving it perfectly for Marchisio to fire home a rocket past England keeper Joe Hart. Verratti did not take a shot during the match, but he remains a decent contributor off corners.
