Italy made a perfect start to their Euro 2020 campaign after defeating Turkey 3-nil in the Group A opener at the Stadio Olimpico – the largest sports facility in Rome.

Turkey managed to hold the hosts nil-all in the first half but a Merih Demiral 53rd minute own goal changed the course of the game boosting Italy’s confidence.

Italy made it 2-nil when Ciro Immobile smashed it home from a rebound inside the penalty box in the 66th minute.

The hosts increased their lead in the 79th minute after Napoli forward, Lorenzo Insigne’s brilliant touch in the right hand corner of the net.

The big win has given Italy a much needed advantage as their goal difference will count in the later stages of the tournament.

Switzerland and Wales are also in this pool and will play tomorrow at 1am.

In other matches tomorrow, Denmark will face Finland at 4am while Belgium will take on Russia at 7am.

You can watch all the action from the tournament LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on FBC Sports on the Walesi platform.
