Italy will kick off the European Championship against Turkey at the Olympic Games in Rome at 9pm on Friday.
Robert Mancini’s team is in good shape. She did not lose 27 consecutive games and won all ten games in the European qualifiers. But Mancini, who was on the eve of the euro, called for caution.
“The first game is always the toughest. We have to relax and get rid of the pressure of being a host, and then everything will be fine. Turkey is full of talented players, but for us, this is just another game in a row. We “We have great players and great team spirit. We had a great time in the national team, so we will continue. I believe we have everything we need to reach the final,” said the Italian coach.
Mancini was not without problems before the game. It has been a long time since he could count on Marco Villati. Lorenzo Pellegrini was injured before the game and will be replaced by Gaetano Castrovelli.
All Italian games are played in Rome. After Turkey, he will face Switzerland on Wednesday and Wales four days later.
