After another sound win against 10-man Wales, Italy have secured top spot in Group A and will face Group C runners-up Austria in the Round of 16. Now that the group stage is over for the Italians, let’s take a look at what we’ve learned about this side so far.
The day has finally come. The 2020 Euros are here in 2021. Match 1 of 51 kicked off in Rome on Friday as Italy played host to Turkey. Italy come into the tournament in good form, winning all ten of their qualifying matches, and not losing a competitive match since September of 2018. But with an interesting first test against Turkey, another team in good form, many were excited to see if Italy could continue their impressive run of results on the big stage.
After an average 9th place finish in the 2019/20 campaign, Eintracht Frankfurt are set to finish in the top five of the Bundesliga for the first time since 1993/94. Though this current season has been a categorical success, it will be a summer of change for Eintracht Frankfurt. Both sporting CEO Fredi Bobic, and manager Adi Hütter are set to leave the club for new adventures, while much uncertainty remains over the future of their talismanic striker Andre Silva. With these question marks in mind, a new question emerges - what comes next for Die Adler? Will they be able to find new ways of flying at lofty heights, or will they come crashing down to Bundesliga mediocrity?
