Despite coming into the competition with expectations unusually low, Italian got their Euro 2016 campaign off to a winning start on Monday night, courtesy of an impressive 2-0 win against a highly-rated Belgian side.

Ex-Sunderland winger Emanuele Giaccherini (after a superb Leonardo Bonucci pass) and Southampton striker Graziano Pelle got the goals for the Azzurri, with manager Antonio Conte celebrating his side’s opener so hard that he suffered a nosebleed for his trouble.

New Chelsea boss Conte oversaw a superb display from his side, who dealt superbly with Belgium’s big-name attackers. However, the Italians were also a potent force in attack themselves, getting forward whenever possible. And what an incredible pass from Bonucci for the Giaccherrni goal…

Despite lacking the star players of previous years, Italy look like a team who could go further in France than most people expected. As for Marc Wilmots’ star-studded Belgium, they look in danger of yet another major underachievement at a major finals.
