Italy has begun Euro 2020 on a high with a 3-0 triumph that has persuaded more people to take their name in vain. Disappointing Turkey with the concept of dark horses is quite deceptive and deceiving. How often have we seen it? How amazing it is to see football with a stadium full of fans.

Turkey Starting lineup: Cakir, Celik, Demiral, Soyuncu, Meras, Yokuslu, Calhanoglu, Tufan, Under; Yazici; Yilmaz

Italy Starting lineup: Donnarumma, Florenzi, Bonucci, Chiellini, Spinazzola, Barella, Jorginho, Locatelli; Berardi, Immobile, Insigne

These two well-organized teams have had a late revival as of late. Both countries can probably perform an intense yet technically skilled affair.

Both teams may be perceiving the other as their real group competitors. Even a goal might have been the decider between these two equally matched teams, especially while a considerable amount of defensive us is on display.

We are up and running with Euro 2020. Italy had an amazing last night, and Mancini would have enjoyed his team’s performance. The Azzurri controlled the first half; both teams were level at the halftime whistle. In the second half, Italy had the most chances. They blazed all their weapons and scored three. Immobile and Insigne scored two more, Demiral tackled the ball in his net with his own goal.

Turkey seemed overwhelmed by the opportunity and gave in to Italy. They were parking the bus to stop Italy from running them over. During the second half, when Cengiz broke the defense, he had to continue his run because no one supported him in the offense.

Italy dominated the proceedings from start to finish. Still, it seemed like a side of Turkey that would not put much of a flight to the dark horse Italy and would disappoint their fans for most of the first half. 

On Thursday, Italy will play Switzerland, and that might be the deciding match between group A. Same day, Turkey would be up against wales. They would be hoping to compete for the chance to put on some pressure in the group, hoping someone else in the group makes a mistake they can capitalize on.
