Italy 4-0 Czech Republic: Azzurri rout Czechs for eighth win in row

Ciro Immobile
Ciro Immobile’s 13th international goal makes him the top scorer in Italy’s Euro 2020 squad

Italy brushed aside the Czech Republic in their final Euro 2020 warm-up game in Bologna for an eighth consecutive win without conceding a goal.

Ciro Immobile drilled in their opener before Nicolo Barella scored their second, courtesy of a huge deflection, after a run from the halfway line.

Lorenzo Insigne – on his 30th birthday – swept home from Immobile’s pass.

Insigne then picked out Domenico Berardi in space and the striker chipped in a fourth.

Berardi’s Sassuolo team-mate Giacomo Raspadori, a 21-year-old forward, came on for his international debut with 12 minutes to go.

Roberto Mancini’s Azzurri – who host Turkey in the opening game of Euro 2020 next Friday – have not lost a game since 2018.

Italy are also in Group A with Wales and Switzerland. The Czech Republic are in Group D with England, Scotland and Croatia.
