The Turkish national team for the fifth time managed to break into the final tournament of the European Championship. It should be noted that this rally will be the second in a row for Shenol Gunesh’s charges. The Turkish squad went to the Euro from Group H, where it took second place, while becoming the author of a sensational victory over France (2: 0). In total, the “moon stars” celebrated success seven times in qualification, with the best indicator in terms of the quality of defense in the group, where the Turks conceded only three times.
The Italian national team has almost completely renewed its roster in recent years, which has brought phenomenal achievements and a series. In qualification for Euro 2020, “Scuadra Azura” gave the maximum result – 10 victories out of 10 possible. It is respectable that the Italians hit the gates of their opponents 37 times during the qualifying tournament. Azure Squadron brilliantly started the preliminary stage for the World Championship in Qatar – three victories over Northern Ireland, Bulgaria and Lithuania with the same score 2: 0. Roberto Mancini’s charges have won both of the last test matches. To date, the winning streak without conceding goals has been eight matches in a row.
