Roberto Mancini’s Italy have proven themselves to be legitimate contenders for the upcoming Euros.
Undefeated in 28 matches, they’ve been exceptionally hard to beat, as Mancini has formed a balanced, disciplined and spirited team. Having been in charge for 33 games, the fact Mancini’s men have only conceded 14 goals while scoring 82 goals illustrates their quality.
Breezing through qualifying for the tournament by winning all 10 of their matches, plus beating Turkey comprehensively in their Euro opener 3-0, they have proved what a force they are to be reckoned with.
Placed in a challenging group that contains Switzerland, Wales and Turkey for the Euros, they’ll be wary not to underestimate their foes even though they should comfortably progress.
Considering all their matches are on home soil at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico, this should work in their favour and further enhances their chances of not only progressing but also topping their group.

Littered with a nice blend of youth and experience, Mancini’s 4-3-3 has class in all areas of the pitch, which sees them operate well both defensively and offensively. In goal Gianluigi Donnarumma will be the starter, as he’ll be ably supported by Alessandro Florenzi, Leonardo Spinazzola, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.
Then, in midfield, their starting three is nothing short of exceptional, as Jorginho, Nicolo Barella and Marco Verratti give them plenty of control, balance and the ability to carve open defensive units.
Federico Chiesa, Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne will form an exciting front three, as they provide plenty of dynamism, skill and goal threat in the final third.
Their squad importantly has depth all over too, with the likes of Giacomo Raspadori, Domenico Berardi, Andrea Belotti, Bryan Cristante and Alessandro Bastoni ensuring they’re stocked in all areas.
Priced at $12 to become European champions, the bookies give them a reasonable shout of winning. But with the likes of France, England, Belgium, Germany, Spain and Portugal also right up there, the Azzurri will need to be at their best to be victorious.
In blistering form and with a tremendous collective spirit, Italy have earned their place as one of the favourites for the Euros.
