Martinez: 'Italy Euro 2020 favourites'

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez believes Italy “are among the favourites to win Euro 2020, as Roberto Mancini’s work has been exceptional.”

The Azzurri will have all three group games on home turf at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome against Turkey, Switzerland and Wales.

“Italy are among the favourites to win Euro 2020,” Martinez told the Corriere dello Sport.

They won all 10 qualifiers to make themselves top seeds, just two years after missing out on the 2018 World Cup.

“Mancini’s work has been exceptional. Having said that, qualifiers are one thing and the final phase of the tournament is another.”

Belgium’s Euro 2020 group includes Denmark, Russia and Finland.

“Logistically, it is going to be pretty tough on us, as we are playing in Saint Petersburg and Copenhagen.”
