Mancini full of confidence after naming Italy Euros squad

Italy coach Roberto Mancini has named his Euros squad.

The Azzurri are in Group A with Switzerland, Turkey and Wales, opening the tournament at the Stadio Olimpico against Turkey on June 11.

There were some doubts remaining as Mancini had to whittle down the provisional 28-man squad to 26.

“We hope that this adventure lasts as long as possible and we can make the Italians happy," said Mancini.

“Our Nazionale was born after the disappointment of the 2018 World Cup and many young players came in, plus we fortunately started strong and that helped create this positive atmosphere."
