Italy, which extended their unbeaten run to 20 games, had called up a 41-man squad for the League of Nations game and games against Poland and Bosnia to give less experienced players a break.
Alessandro Bastoni made his defense center debut while Grifo, who was born in Germany to Italian parents and has spent his entire career in the Bundesliga, made his fourth international appearance.
“It was a game where we had everything to lose, but we did what we had to do,” said Evani. “We tried to play but we learned a few things and there is an exceptional human quality in this squad.”
The first goal came in style when Grifo scored with a half volley from 25 yards, which flew off the foot of the post after 14 minutes.
Federico Bernardeschi, who was fighting for form at Juventus, cut in and scored the second goal 13 minutes later with a low shot in the post.
Grifo converted a penalty in the 75th minute after a foul on Roberto Gagliardini before substitute Riccardo Orsolini won and converted another penalty in the 86th minute to score two goals in as many internationals.
