Patrick Cutrone has not had the easiest time of it since joining Wolverhampton Wanderers from AC Milan in the summer.
The Italian has started just 3 Premier League games this season, while he has played from the start in just 8 matches in all competitions – from his total of 19 appearances, he has managed 2 goals and 4 assists so far.
He managed to score the same amount of goals in one outing for Italy U21s against Iceland on Saturday.
Patrick Cutrone grabbed 2 late goals tonight for Italy U21 as they beat Iceland U21 3-0.

Many of the club’s fans were delighted for the 21-year-old to get a brace for his country, hoping the confidence boost from it can be taken back to Molineux.
However, having come out of the international game with a brace, he should have the boost needed to push on.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the performance, including posts from delighted Wolves fans, can be seen below:
