Italy head coach Roberto Mancini shared his emotions after defeating Turkey (3-0) in the first match of the 2020 European Championship.
According to Mancini, it is too early to talk about the chances of his team for the final triumph. At the same time, “Squadra Azzurra” extended the unbeaten run to 28 meetings, and for the first time in history won nine matches in a row without conceding a single goal.
“We showed good football. We failed to score before the break, it was not easy, because this is a debut. In such games, you need everything. The support of the stands helped us. The main role was played by the fact that we moved the ball quickly, there was always a free partner to get the pass. The evening turned out to be wonderful, and I hope that there are still many of them ahead. The final? It is still far from it. There are six meetings ahead, “said Mancini.
We add that in the match of the second round of the group stage, Italy will host Switzerland in Rome on June 16.
