Italy kicked off the European Championship with a convincing 3-0 victory over Turkey in Group A at Rome's Stadio Olimpico on Friday.

Roberto Mancini's side put on an emphatic showing after Andrea Bocelli had opened the tournament singing Italia '90 anthem Nessun Dorma on the pitch pre-match.

Turkey managed to frustrate their opponents for 45 minutes but faltered badly after the break as Merih Demiral put through on his net (53) following a Domenico Berardi cross.

That opened the game up which suited Italy's aggressive and attack-minded style as Immobile (66) and Insigne (79) added further weight to Italy's margin of victory.

Meanwhile, Ukraine has reached a compromise with UEFA on the Ukraine's national football team's kit for Euro 2020. For the period of the tournament matches, one more element will appear in addition to the previously approved design of the uniform of the national team. This was announced by UAF President Andriy Pavelko on his Facebook page.

According to him, UEFA agreed to take into account today's decision of the Executive Committee of the Ukrainian Association of Football (UAF) and asked for time to further study this issue after the end of Euro 2020.
