Turkey 0-3 Italy: Insigne and Immobile shine as the Turks suffer defeat on Euro opening day

0

Euro 2020 opened in spectacular fashion as Italy got their campaign off to an impressive start in front of their own fans with a comfortable victory against Turkey.

The Azzurri dominated the first half but could not find the net, Giorgio Chiellini going closest with a header from a corner which brought a fine save from Ugurcan Cakir.

They broke the deadlock when Demiral turned the ball past his own keeper trying to cut out Domenico Berardi’s second-half cross before Lazio’s Immobile, playing on his home ground, pounced after Leonardo Spinazzola’s shot was blocked by the keeper.

Italy wrapped up a satisfying win though Insigne’s powerful finish, after he was teed up by the impressive Immobile.
