Mancini's Italy breaks more records with Armenia thrashing

Roberto Mancini's Italy managed to break more records with last night's 9-1 Euros qualifying defeat of Armenia.

It marked the final game of their qualifying campaign - leaving them a 100 per cent record.

The Azzurri have now recorded more wins in a single calendar year than any other.

The record stood at nine victories (set in 1990, 1994, 2000 and 2003), but tonight's result has set this year apart with 10 success stories.

Italy have also won 11 games in a row, another all-time record, and in recent days Mancini overtook Vittorio Pozzo's long-standing record of nine, that was achieved in 1938-39.
