A Italy did not take notice of the opponent and won the Turkey 3-0, at the Olympic stadium in Rome, on the afternoon of Friday, 11, at the opening of the Eurocup. Demiral (against), Immobile e Badge scored for the team trained by Roberto Mancini, which starts the competition at the top of Group A. This Saturday, 12, at the Baku Olympics, in the capital of Azerbaijan, Wales e Switzerland face off at 10 am (GMT), in the other match of the bracket. The day will also feature duels between Denmark x Finland and Belgium x Russia, valid for Group B.

“Azzurra” controlled the match from beginning to end, imposing their style of play and occupying the defensive field of the Turks. Risking a lot from outside the area, as Turkey had the most players close to their area, Italy mainly bothered with shots from Insgine e Berardi. Despite the dominance, the Italian team went down to the locker room frustrated, with a 0-0 on the scoreboard. In addition, the team led by Mancini complained a lot about the refereeing, who did not score a penalty in a touch on Celik’s hand, already 44 minutes into the first stage.

On the return from half-time, Italy remained sovereign in the match and opened the scoring in the 7th minute. On the left, Berardi made a good individual play and crossed hard. The ball hit Demiral, who placed it against their own nets. With the goal, the Italian team was more comfortable in the confrontation and reached the second in the 20th minute. In the goalkeeper’s rebound after Barella’s submission, Immobile finished without marking, swelling the net. In the final minutes, goalkeeper Cakir missed the ball and gave it free to the opponent. After a quick exchange of passes, Insigne received from Immobile, which just rolled into the goal.
