The following is a Euro 2020 Group A Team Preview, Italy, in this group, being the focus of this article.
Italy is one of the four countries in Group A of the Euros and there will be no excuses.
Roberto Mancini’s Italy can’t hide because the Azzurri are one of the favorites to win Euro 2020.
Indeed, after years of setbacks and disappointments, they have all the necessary talents to advance to the knockout level.
Group A, in which they will compete, is not the easiest, but Italy can emerge as winners in this cluster.
Of course, Turkey will be Italy’s most dreaded opponent in the group stage. Along with the Turks, however, the Italians must not overlook the potential of Wale.
Above all, Switzerland is a team that has always irritated the Italians and they are resurgent and ambitious now.
After too many years of disappointments, Italy’s minimal goal will be to get out of the group stage.
This, though, will still not be enough for a team that is arguably one of the finest in the world.
The average age of the Italian team this time is young. Chiellini and Bonucci are the only seniors on this Italy team right now. Behind them is a good mix of young talents, which involves players searching for their final international consecration.
Plus, Mancini has done a great deal in his time as coach to encourage a generational change.
The only unknown, assuming they qualify from the group, will be the group’s lack of experience playing key knockout matches.
Nonetheless, Mancini’s work experience and the key matches played with their clubs should aid the players in these knockout rounds.
Our Prediction on Italy

Given the quality of the teams competing in Euro 2020, we predict Italy may well reach the semi-finals.
Italy aside, France, England, and Belgium should be the other three semi-finalists contending for the crown, in our opinion.
