The evening game between Great Britain, who are attempting to #RestoretheRoar in British American Football, and the home-town Italians proved to be the tightest game yet in the tournament. Team GB lead 16-13 with under a minute in the game, and the Italians were backed up inside their own 20. On 4th and 5, the Italians converted on a 50 yard pass, and then reached the British red-zone on a 36 yard pass. The Italians then scored with 20 seconds left to secure their place in the EFAF B-Pool Final on Saturday in Milan, Italy!
