Italy became the first team to reach the knockout stage of the European Championship with another impressive Group A showing at Euro 2020 with a 3-0 victory over Switzerland.

Roberto Mancini’s side cruised to a 3-0 victory over Turkey on the opening day of Euro 2020. They put 3 past the Swiss as well courtesy of another top performance in Rome.

Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli scored twice. First, by finishing off a move he started by tapping in from Domenico Berardi’s pull back.

Italy’s passing and pressing were too much to handle for their opponents. Locatelli’s thunderous strike from the edge of the area was the perfect example of Italy’s dominance.

Lazio striker Ciro Immobile’s long-range effort, which dipped under goalkeeper Yann Sommer, capped off another comprehensive victory.

Switzerland barely threatened an Italian backline that has now gone 10 games without conceding in all competitions, a run approaching 1,000 minutes!

World champions France were tipped by many as favourites for Euro 2020. But Italy are proving to be strong contenders as well.

Switzerland struggled to cope as the Azzurri impressively extended their unbeaten run to 29 matches. They do not seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

Before this tournament, Italy had never scored three goals in a game at the Euros. Now, they have managed to do it in their first two games of Euro 2020.

Switzerland’s only noteworthy chance fell to substitute Steven Zuber, but his low shot was comfortably saved by goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Italy will finish on top of the group as long as they avoid defeat against Wales on Sunday. This would set up a last-16 meeting against the runner-up in Group C (Austria, Ukraine, Netherlands or North Macedonia) at Wembley, London on 26 June.
