Italy vs Turkey

 

Final whistle: Italy 3-0 Turkey

3 | 0 Turkey

For the first time in the EURO championships, Insigne scores three goals for Italy! Turkey fail to cope with a right-wing cross, looking ragged as they try to clear the danger, only for the ball to break for Insigne on the left outside of the penalty area, curling clinically past Uurcan Akr at his far post. What a start for the Azzurri to the tournament!

66th minute: Italy 2 | 0 Turkey

Any frustrations Immobile may have felt after going close but not being rewarded in the first half are extinguished when the ball falls kindly to him following a fine save by Uurcan Akr, who only managed to palm Spinazzola's powerful low strike from outside the penalty area on the left into the path of the striker in front of goal. The in-form attacker calmly slots the finish into the far corner of the net, despite Zeki elik's desperate attempt to block the strike.

53rd minute: Italy 1-0

Italy scores... its goal! Berardi darts down the left flank and approaches the near post inside the penalty area, where he whips in a dangerous cross that Turkey's Merih Demiral can only divert into his own net. It may not have gone exactly as planned, but the Azzurri's domination has been recognised!
