Italy manager Roberto Mancini urged his players to entertain the public one last time at Euro 2020 and said he has no plans to alter the Azzurri’s attacking style for Sunday’s final against England at Wembley.
The Italians have been one of the most attractive teams to watch throughout the tournament, scoring 12 goals, second only to Spain, which struck 13 times before being eliminated on penalties by Mancini’s side in the semi-finals.
Asked for words to describe his team, Mancini told a news conference: “Entertaining and fun, but also concrete and substantial. There have been some tough matches. Some have been extremely challenging.”
“Nothing was easy, even in the group stage, we did a good job to get over the line as quickly as possible after two matches. But it has been a rocky road along the way, we have had to battle hard.”
