The Italy national team is considered one of the favourites to win Euro 2020 after years of setbacks and disappointments. The Azzurri is included in Group A, which is very tough, nevertheless, they have all the necessary talents to advance to the knockout level. We have noted down a preview of Italy in Group A ahead of Euro 2020.
Roberto Mancini’s Italy has an average of young football players. As a coach, Mancini has done great work in his time to encourage generational change. The only seniors on the team right now are Chiellini and Bonucci, behind them is a good mix of young talents and guys searching for their final international consecration.
In Euro 2020’s group stage, Turkey will be Italy’s most dreaded opponent, but the Italians must not overlook the potential of Wales. In addition, it is reported that a resurgent and ambitious Switzerland has always irritated the Italians.
The only unknown, assuming they qualify from the group, will be the group’s lack of experience playing key knockout matches; nonetheless, Mancini’s work and the key matches played with their clubs should aid the players in the knockout rounds.
Italy’s minimal goal will be to get out of the group stage after too many years of disappointments, however, of course, it will not be sufficient for a club that is perceived as one of the finest in the world.
It is believed Azzurri has a good chance of reaching the semi-finals, taking note on the quality of the teams competing in Euro 2020. Trying to imagine how the football tournament will play out, France, England, and Belgium should be the other three teams contending for the crown, in our opinion.
