Italy defeats Switzerland to qualify for Euro 2020 last 16

Italy has demolished Switzerland 3-0, to qualify at the 2020 UEFA European Championship for knockout stages.

Manuel Locatelli scored the goals for the first time in his career as Italy defeated Switzerland 3-0 to become the first side into the last-16 of the European Championship.

Midfielder Locatelli, 23, opened the scoring with a simple tap-in following Domenico Berardi’s quick run down the right wing, before he rifled a shot into the bottom corner of the net from the edge of the box in the second half.

Ciro Immobile scored third to secure back-to-back 3-0 wins for Italy in the tournament.

Switzerland barely threatened an Italian backline that has now gone 10 games without conceding in all competitions, a run approaching 1,000 minutes.

Italy lead Group A with six points after two rounds of matches and are ahead of Wales (four), Switzerland (one) and Turkey (zero).
