Euro 2020: Italy qualify for the next round after beating Switzerland

Italy have become the first team to qualify for the second round of Euro 2020 after beating Switzerland 3-0.

Giorgio Chiellini thought he had scored the opener in the 19th minute, but the goal was chalked off for offside, but in the 26th minute, Manuel Locatelli broke the deadlock from a Domenico Berardi assist.

Locatelli extended the Italians lead in the 52nd minute, with Nicolo Barela providing the assist. Late on in the 89th minute, Rafael Tolio picked out Ciro Immobile, who scored the goal to make it 3-0.

Italy have now won their first two matches by a 3-0 scoreline, and have qualified for the second round. Netherlands, on the other hand, can still progress but will need to defeat Turkey in the final Group A fixture.
