Italy are a team transformed from World Cup failures to Euro 2020 perfect records, but Giancarlo Rinaldi awaits further developments.

They might have disguised themselves in green, but it did not leave us feeling blue. From one of the lowest points in the history of the Italian national team, we really could not have asked for more.

A 100% Euro 2020 qualification record - matched only by Belgium - and a place secured with three games to spare would have seemed almost unimaginable two years ago. Roberto Mancini has delivered on his promises with the same style he used to produce with the Sampdoria Number 10 on his back.

Roberto Mancini is one off the all-time record of nine consecutive Italy victories, set by Vittorio Pozzo in 1938-39.

The Azzurri saw off Greece 2-0 this evening to secure their place at Euro 2020 and are mathematically guaranteed top of Group J too.

There are still three games to go in this group and Mancini can still write himself another place in history.
