Italy starts the European Championship strongly and wins the opening match in Rome 0-3 against Turkey.

The former Sparta player went in hard at Nicolò Barella.

89 'Makkelie still hands out the first yellow card of this tournament and that is for Turkey defender Caglar Söyüncü.

So he will have a good start with his team: Roberto Mancini.

Italy leads comfortably 0-3 against Turkey just before time.

85' Whoops.

Berardi gets a push and ends up ugly.

He screams out in pain and is immediately replaced by Federico Bernardeschi.

84 'Halil Dervisoglu, with a past at Sparta Rotterdam, also joined the team at Turkey a few minutes earlier.

He replaced Kenan Karaman.

79' GOAL Italy! 

0-3



It gets even better for the Italians and worse for Turkey.

The Turks hand in the ball extremely clumsily during the build-up and after a pass from Immobile, Insigne manages to curl the ball into the far corner with a placed bet.

The moment of the 0-2 of Immobile.

74' Substitution at Italy: Manuel Locatelli is replaced by Bryan Cristante.

71 'Both countries already seem to understand which way this is going.

Italy plays the ball quietly, knowing that the three points are as good as in.

Turkey is not involved and can only hope that the result is not too big in view of the goal difference.

in 2 days

On the right is Turkey's unlucky person: Merih Demiral, the man who scored the own goal for Italy's 0-1.

66' GOAL Italy! 

0-2



Now Italy does it itself!

Berardi is important again: he finds Spinazzola and the AS Roma player's shot is still blocked, but Immobile's rebound does fly in.

It also seems to be the decision in this duel.

in 2 days

64 'Turkey has the ball and can catch a breath.

The Turks will have to take a different approach, because in this way there is no result for the team of national coach Senol Günes.

in 2 days

We played for an hour in Rome.

Italy has grown through the opening goal and is chasing the 0-2.

Turkey really can't get out and has to hope that it can survive this phase without another goal against.

in 2 days

And so for the first time this European Championship can really be cheered!

The Italians are the lucky ones, for that matter,

in 2 days

55 'The Italians press on and become dangerous via Spinazzola (shot blocked by goalkeeper Cakir) and Immobile (bicycle kick from the front).

Turkey must be careful not to give up the game completely in a short time.

53' GOAL Italy! 

0-1



The spell is broken in Rome!

Berardi is played with some space on the right, goes around the outside (passing his falling opponent) and sees that his hard cross lands in the goal via Merih Demiral.

That's an own goal.

in 2 days

52 'Ünder escapes after losing the ball to the Italians.

The substitute goes on a long road in the hunt for a possible goal, but his shot ends up in the hands of Donnarumma via an Italian leg.

in 2 days

50 'The second half started just as gently as the first act.

Italy has more of the ball, but keeps running out of trouble on Turkey's close-knit defense.

in 2 days

A substitution on both sides: Giovanni Di Lorenzo joins Italy for Alessandro Florenzi and Cengiz Ünder replaces Yusuf Yazici at Turkey.

46' Kick-off! 

We are playing soccer again in Rome!

The second half at Turkey-Italy (0-0) is on its way...

It's rest! 

No goals halfway through Turkey-Italy.

The Italians are better and also had some chances, but were not successful yet.

The 2006 world champion also failed to decorate a penalty with a lot of shouting, because referee Makkelie did not want that.

in 2 days

45 'That is the third time that the Italians are screaming for a penalty.

Again a cross from Spinazzola ends up on a Turkish arm.

This time the VAR will look, but it will not be a penalty.

in 2 days

44 'The long attack eventually results in a shot from Immobile, but that goes straight to goalkeeper Cakir.

in 2 days

43 'Italy plays the ball around the Turkish penalty area for a while.

Not out of luxury, but because the hole is not found.

However, the Turks are unable to hold onto the ball afterwards.

in 2 days

38 'We are heading for peace in Rome.

The moments of excitement mainly took place in front of the Turkish goal, but they have not yet led to goals.

in 2 days

35 'Gianluigi Donnarumma has to come into action for the first time (a little).

The Italy goalkeeper boxed away a cross from Burak Ymazlmaz, so that Turkey's chance was lost.

That was, if you can call it that, the first danger of the Turks.

in 2 days

33 'Immobile can head after a good combination of the Italians.

The ball goes wide, so it still remains 0-0.

in 2 days

30 'We played for half an hour.

Italy could have taken the lead, but it's not all that spectacular yet.

Turkey hasn't shown anything yet.

in 2 days

Danny Makkelie has not really had to intervene yet, but has already twice been confronted by a group of protesting Italians.

They claimed hands and wanted a penalty.

The ball also hit a Turkish hand twice, but not in such a way as to give a penalty.

in 2 days

Italy is growing in the duel and is the parent in Rome.

Turkey can only hold back and has not yet been dangerous in the transition.

in 2 days

22' 

Chance! 

Here it is almost 0-1 for Italy.

Chiellini can head after a corner, but Turkey goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir has a great save to prevent the opening goal.

in 2 days

21 'Shouting again from the stands.

This time when Immobile's shot landed on Caglar Söyüncü's arm, but the Turkish defender couldn't help it and he had his arm neatly by the body.

So no penalty for Italy.

in 2 days

Insigne is disappointed, because he really had the best chance so far to get the score.

For the time being, after twenty minutes of play, it is still 0-0 in Rome.

in 2 days

18 'Excitement in the stadium when a cross from Leonardo Spinazzola comes on the arm of Zeki Celik, but Makkelie (rightly) does not point to the spot.

Not much later Lorenzo Insigne gets a real chance after a good combination, but his placed bet flies wide.

in 2 days

14 'A shot from distance from Berardi is blocked early and is therefore not dangerous.

Just a moment, let's stick to that, because that was a while ago.

in 2 days

As is often the case, an opening game is a game of caution and that is also the case in Rome for the time being.

In terms of football spectacle, it seems to come from the Italians, because Turkey is mainly lurking for the switch.

in 2 days

11 'Italy is looking for spaces in Turkey's close defense, but that is not working for the time being.

Turkey itself has not yet been dangerous.

in 2 days

8 'It is a scan in the opening phase.

Italy has more of the ball, but is too sloppy for the time being to become really dangerous.

The Italians also know that Turkey is life-threatening in the counter.
