Euro 2020: Italy First Team To Knockouts After Switzerland Win

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

Roberto Mancini’s side swatted Turkey aside on the opening day of the tournament and made it back-to-back 3-0 wins courtesy of another enterprising performance in Rome.

Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli scored twice and striker Ciro Immobile scored his second in as many games as the Azurri completed a comprehensive victory late on.

Switzerland were barely in the game and the reticent Italian backline has now gone 10 games without conceding in all competitions, a run approaching 1,000 minutes.
