Azzurri to play in Palermo, Milan

It has been confirmed that Palermo and Milan will host Italy’s opening two home Euro 2016 qualifying matches.

The Stadio Renzo Barbera will play host to the Azzurri’s meeting with Azerbaijan on Friday October 10, while the iconic San Siro has been named as the venue for the Nazionale’s encounter with Croatia on Sunday November 16.

The Azzurri, who are still yet to name a successor to former Coach Cesare Prandelli, begin their bid to reach the finals in France on September 9 when they travel to Norway.

The other two teams in Group H are Bulgaria and minnows Malta.
