6 Out Of 6 Italy Book Second Round Spot In Euro 2020

Six points and six goals from their first two games helped Italy book their place in the second round of the ongoing Euro 2020.

Italy beat Switzerland 3-0 in their second Group A game on Wednesday at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

The result means Italy has gone nine matches without conceding a goal and twenty-eight matches without a loss, the last time being in 2018 – a 3-1 defeat to France.

The scoreline was also the second time Italy has won with that margin in this competition after also seeing Turkey 3-0 in the opening game of the Euros.

The best outing for the Azzurri at a UEFA Euro Finals in recent time was a second place finish at Euro 2012, losing scandalously to Spain 4-0.

While Manuel Locatelli helped himself to a brace, Lazio forward Ciro Immobile wrapped the win off with a brilliant strike to make it his second goal in as many games.

Italy will now face Wales who currently occupy the second position in after beating an unconvincing Turkey side 2-0.
