Italy vs Czech Republic Live Football Match 4 June 2021
World – Friendlies
Date: Friday, 4 June 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET,
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara (Bologna).
Title contenders Italy conclude their preparations for Euro 2020 on Friday, as they meet fellow finalists Czech Republic in Bologna.
Having finalised their squad following last week’s thumping of San Marino, the Azzurri now have one final fixture to warm up for this summer’s main event. Italy coach Roberto Mancini named his final 26-man squad for Euro 2020 earlier this week, as his in-form side ready themselves for the challenge of contesting Group A with Switzerland, Turkey and Wales in the coming weeks.
Ahead of opening their quest for continental glory at Stadio Olimpico against Turkey next week, Mancini further whittled down his provisional selection after a training camp at Coverciano and a 7-0 win over neighbouring San Marino.
Having contributed to the defensive instability which effectively wrecked Roma’s season this spring, Gianluca Mancini was among the men to miss out, along with Everton’s Moise Kean, Atalanta midfielder Matteo Pessina and Napoli winger Matteo Politano. Now looking ahead to Friday’s fixture at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, former Manchester City manager Mancini will be aware that expectation is growing throughout the peninsula.
Since taking the reins in May 2018, he has the highest win rate of any Italy manager – coming out on top in over two-thirds of his 28 games to date – and his new-look Azzurri have rattled in 67 goals and conceded just 14 during the process.
With the ink still drying on a new contract that runs until 2026, Mancini has so far made a success of bouncing back from the bitter humiliation of failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. Italy have since eased to qualification for both the Euros and the semi-finals of the ongoing Nations League; also claiming three wins from three on the road to Qatar 2022, while extending their unbeaten home record in World Cup qualifiers to 56 games.
