Training under the music, at least in the warm-up phase – a custom for the blue group -, under the watchful eye of the coach Roberto Mancini and his assistants, Salsano and De Rossi above all. Italy the working week begins will lead to the debut at Euro 2020 against Turkey, match scheduled at the Olimpico in Rome on Friday 11 June at 9 pm. Smiles and concentration in Coverciano: 21 active players on the pitch, absent only Verratti (the recovery phase after the injury is continuing) and Florenzi (no worries, normal physiotherapy session), in addition to the 3 goalkeepers who worked with their trainer.

Usual blue group in the center of the field at the beginning of training, with the coach Mancini who illustrated the program of today’s session. Torello, shots, then the anti-Turkey tests. With the blue coach who seems to have clear enough ideas about the formation to be sent on the field at the debut against Calhanoglu and his teammates: in goal Donnarumma, in defense Florenzi, Bonucci and Chiellini, on the left Spinazzola ahead of Emerson Palmieri. In midfield with Barella and Jorginho will be there Locatelli, forward at the moment Immobile favorite over Belotti, Berardi on Chiesa – who in the ideas of the coach could be a weapon even in the running race – and Insigne on the left.
ITALY (4-3-3), the probable formation: Donnarumma; Florenzi, Bonucci, Chiellini, Spinazzola; Barella, Jorginho, Locatelli; Berardi, Immobile, Insigne. Coach: Mancini.
