Euro 2020; Italy see off Switzerland to book Round of 16 spot

Italy became the first team to reach the knockout stage of the Euro 2020 with an impressive 3-0 victory over Switzerland in Wednesday’s Group A encounter.

Roberto Mancini’s side thrashed Turkey 3-0 on the tournament’s opening day and made it consecutive 3-0 wins thanks to another dominant performance in Rome.

Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli scored twice, and Lazio striker Ciro Immobile’s long-range effort sealed off a comfortable victory for the Azzurri.

Italy can finish top of the group with a point on Sunday when they take on Wales, who sealed a 2-0 win over Turkey earlier on Wednesday, leading to a possible last-16 meeting against the runner-up in Group C Wembley Stadium on June 26.
