  • JUN 11, 2021 11:45 PM IST

    Why Immobile is key for Italy?

    Ciro Immobile has been one of the top goal-scorers in Serie A and he has to be the key for Italy this time around. Turkey have never won against Italy, but this game could break this curse, this Turkey squad is no joke. Immobile has to give his team an early goal, he is a poacher, and that is his job for today.

  • JUN 11, 2021 11:37 PM IST

    Verratti not playing

    Injured Marco Verratti NOT playing for Italy against Turkey. The midfield of Jorghino and Berardi is a good one, but Verratti will be a big miss. This looks like a 4-3-3 formation from Mancini with Florenzi and Spinazzola playing at the wing from defence. Interesting aspect of match

We want to entertain people even if only for 90 minutes. It would be nice for everyone. So we are here, and we will try to give our everything. The first match is always the most difficult, especially at the beginning, but we have to be mentally free, to think about what we have to do, to do our job without thinking about other stuff, to enjoy it. This must be our goal.”
