Euro 2020 opened spectacularly as Italy started the tournament with an impressive fashion in front of their fans with a 3-0 victory against Turkey.

In the first game of the tournament, an own goal by Merih Demiral and strikes by Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne settled a one-sided Group A contest.

The Azzurri dominated the first half but there were no goals. They eventually found the net when Demiral turned the ball past his keeper trying to cut out Domenico Berardi’s second-half cross before Ciro Immobile’s goal. Italy ended the game with a satisfying win through Lorenzo Insigne’s powerful finish after he was teed up by the impressive Immobile.
