Roberto Mancini’s Italy is different, wins with play and goals. “Axurrët” started with a 3-0 triumph against Turkey in “Olimpico” of Rome, taking the first three points in Group A, where they are the absolute favorites to advance to the next round.
An Italian-dominated duel that could have scored in the first half with Insigne and Chiellini, but Turkey’s Çakir did not allow such a thing. In the end the protagonist was also the referee Danny Makkelie, who did not award a penalty in the last minute of the first half.
The controversy over that episode would be great, but thankfully they had no bearing on the fate of the match. The second half started with the same picture, with Italy persistently looking for the lead goal and found it with a little help.
Demiral deflected a ball into the area and led it to the gate defended by Çakir. Great celebration in the stadium, Italy in the lead and the second goal was needed. Protagonists Spinazzola and Immobile, with the latter not forgiving inside the area and scoring.
The whole evening was of Italy. After an error in passing goalkeeper Çakir, “Axurrët” scored the third goal. Again an attacker, Insigne, who did not forgive. 3-0 and practically everything was closed and so it turned out, as there was no other goal until the end.
Italy continues to deepen the record, with 28 games without a loss in the international arena. The last loss was caused by Portugal in September 2018.
