UEFA EURO 2020 kicks off in Rome as Italy – one of 11 host countries – take on Turkey in the opening round of Group A games.

This is the teams’ second meeting in a EURO final tournament. Dino Zoff’s Italy were 2-1 winners in their opening fixture at UEFA EURO 2000 thanks to goals from Antonio Conte – a spectacular overhead kick – and Filippo Inzaghi, a penalty; Okan Buruk was on target for a Turkey team coached by Mustafa Denizli. Both sides progressed from the section, Italy going on to lose the final to France while Turkey were beaten by Portugal in the quarter-finals.

  1. Against Turkey we have never lost in the whole history of football .. however we have not played against them in a long time and, perhaps, they have improved!

  2. That ten years' team were more talented and legendary (95-05) but today we have a more disciplined team, azzuri will be beaten and our red white boys gonna win. 2-1 and Turkey this time
