Italy set a new national record on Saturday after defeating Austria in Euro Cup 2020. Italy’s team has won the 31st match in a row. Extra-time goals from Federico Chiesa and Matteo Pessina helped Italy win over Austria in the 16th match of the Euro Cup 2020 at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. As a result of this 2–1 win over Austria, Italy qualified for the quarter-finals and the team will now play their next match on 2nd July. 

Italy broke the 82-year record after the victory against Austria. Earlier, Italy, under Roberto Mancini’s captaincy, equaled the record with a 1–0 win over Wales, but Italy’s national record was broken after a win against Austria.

Vittorio Pozzo was Italy’s coach when the team played four years without a loss between October 1935 and July 1939. During that phase, Italy won its second consecutive World Cup and also won a gold medal at the 1936 Olympic Games. Italy has lost two matches since Mancini took over in May 2018 and the last defeat came against Portugal in a Nations League match in September of that year.

Talking about the Euro Cup 2020 season, two teams have qualified for the quarter-finals. Denmark defeated Wales to reach the quarter-finals, while Italy defeated Austria to reach the quarter-finals. The winning teams of two matches that were held on 27th June will also advance to the quarter-finals, while the losing teams will end the tournament.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
