The show can start!
Tonight the whole football world will be focused on the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. The UEFA Euro 2020 finally can start after the delay in the previous year. This June 2021 football Europe is ready to go for the most exciting national teams tournament on the continent. And the emotions are even higher since the fans are allowed to be present on the stations once again!
The tournament starts with the Group A clash between the national teams of Turkey and Italy.
Turkey has a great team once again. Great combination of experienced and young players, who are capable of facing great football teams, and play very dynamic and competitive football. In the previous period, Turks showed that no matter what happens on the pitch, they will find a way to bounce back. Şenol Güneş is a very experienced football manager with a great sense of the right tactic in front of any match. So it won’t be any different tonight against the great Italian national team. The Turkish squad knows that the first match always brings big pressure and determines the rest of the tournament challenges, so they must do their best to avoid losing the opening game. Fighting spirit and focus will be the key to achieving their goal, so tonight besides the physical capabilities, the mental straight must be a big part of the Turkish crew.
Italy on the other hand is the pretender for the leading spot in the group. The Azzurri are very determined to end up as the winner of this match since they are playing at their home stadium in Rome. The experience in big tournaments is definitely on their side. The Italians have won the European championship once and also won the World Cup tournament four times. This brings high confidence and also big expectations from their fans, so the Azzurri must be focused and physically prepared before entering any competition. Ther manager Roberto Mancini will bring the best out of his team at tonight's game to open the tournament in a winning manner. His players are experienced enough to be aware that losing is not an option at the beginning of the tournament. So the defensive line is going to be solid as a rock, and the midfielders will bring a big fight for ball dominance and control of the game, and the offensive guys are going to be focused to capitalize on any mistakes of the opponent.
We expect a great football fight, where both teams will be looking to take advantage of any opponent's mistakes, and the winner could be determined by scoring just one goal. Italy is the favorite at the duel since they are playing at their home field, but Turkey has shown many times that they are big football fighters.
