The Azzurri begin the road to Euro 2020 under Coach Roberto Mancini, who has been in charge for nine months.

Federico Chiesa, Lorenzo Insigne, Alessandro Florenzi and Mattia Perin have all pulled out through injury, but Moise Kean and Cristiano Piccini get their first senior Italy starts.

The Nazionale are unbeaten in a European Championship qualifier for 13 years, managing 24 wins and six draws, with 56 goals scored and 14 conceded, since a 3-1 defeat to France in September 2006.
