Italy leaves Turkey without a chance in European Championship opening match

The Italians once known for their defensive style attacked as usual since Mancini took charge. Nevertheless, they gave away almost no chances against the defensive Turks, who gamble on the counter.

Own goal

The first goal of the European Championship was an own goal. Merih Demiral pushed the ball into the wrong goal in the 53rd minute. The defender who plays at the Italian Juventus could do little about it, as he was unable to move after Domenico Berardi had kicked the ball hard against him from the right flank.

After that, Turkey had to attack a little more, which quickly broke up the formation of national coach Senol Günes. Ciro Immobile scored not too long after the opening goal in the rebound. The attacker of the Roman Lazio did so after goalkeeper Ugurcan Çakir turned a bet from Leonardo Spinazzola. Lorenzo Insigne scored the third goal.

The game, played in front of 16,000 spectators, was led by referee Danny Makkelie. On the Turkish side, Feyenoord player Orkun Kökçü remained on the bench.
