Euro 2020 started on Friday night, a full year later than originally planned. However, after what was an excellent opener between Italy and Turkey, Roberto Mancini’s men assured that it would be worth the wait.

Entering the match, Turkey, led by Senol Gunes, were many fans’ choices as the tournament’s dark horses.

However, it did not take impressive Italy long to remind fans exactly why they are one of the competition’s favorites.

After failing to break through the Turkish side’s resilient defense during the game’s first half, an early own goal in the second 45 minutes from Juventus defender Derimal made sure the Italians led before the hour mark.

When the flood gates opened, it did not take striker Ciro Immobile and wide striker Lorenzo Insigne long to pile on Turkey’s misery.
