Italy crush San Marino 7-0 in Euro 2020 warm-up clash


Italy took a while to break San Marino but eventually enjoyed a comfortable 7-0 home victory in a friendly match on Friday.

Italy have yet to announce their final 26-member squad for Euro 2020, so coach Roberto Mancini fielded an experimental line-up.

The home side dominated from the start but couldn’t find the net until Federico Bernardeschi opened the scoring in the 30th minute. Three minutes later Gian Marco Ferrari doubled the lead.

The Azzurri came back after the break all pumped up with Matteo Politano and Matteo Pessina scoring a brace each, while Andrea Belotti added another.

Italy will take on the Czech Republic on June 4, in their last warm-up match before Euro 2020.
