Just the 210 odd caps between the Italian centre backs...

It's one of my favourites.

Think I’m going to be watching this tournament going - ah, we’re surely better than them. Turkey have such a lack of ambition that Italy have been forced to attack for the full game, and still needed an og to lead so far.

Mancini has Italy playing lovely football on the front foot. Insigne and Immobile a handful up top

Italy very tidy, they can have aspirations to the whole thing.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Very impressive from Italy

They have the coherence in possession you'd expect from a club team, they change the angles very well and made Turkey work very hard to close them down and they didn't give Turkey a sniff of the goal, they were patient in waiting for the first goal and once it went in Turkey were fodder for them

That Turkish defence is not bad either

Italy looked good but considering the extent of football mania in a country of 80m Turkey were very very poor. All the gods of fortune came good for Turkey in their Euro qualifying group including a 90min goal to beat Andorra.
The Swiss must have pulled  the shortest straw in the draw, by the time the group has completed they will have travelled to Baku and back, twice over.

Sergio Busquets, captain of the Spanish team, tested positive for the virus last weekend, forcing the entire squad to self-isolate.  If this is repeated during the tournament, Uefa will require matches to go ahead if at least 13 players from each country’s 26-man squad can play. If not, teams may be forced to draft in youth or reserve players at short notice to fulfil fixtures. Another option would be to delay matches for no longer than two days.

Very impressed by Spinazzola for the Italians.  He obviously didn't have much defending to do but he was a cracking forward outlet on the left.  Veratti still to come into that MF too.  They are in good shape.

They were lucky to get it but the Swiss were not good enough to put them away.

The Fins seem to be intimidated by the Danes. 18 wins and 3 draws in the last 21 fixtures between the teams in favour of the Danes.
