The midfielders looked to be able to score as much as the frontrunners. Midfielders are also capable of scoring goals as leading players And the repositories look like beginners.
Italy's new look is impressive with its offensive appeal at the European Championship.
Midfielder Manuel Locatelli scored two goals on Wednesday, and the Azzurri defeated Switzerland 3-0 to enhance the initial team to enter the last 16 at Euro 2020. They did so in the final game.
They also did so with their 10th consecutive victory.
I'm lucky to have great players who love playing football, having fun, and taking risks, which is the essence of football, said Italian coach Roberto Mancini.
As usual and perhaps the only feature played by Italian teams in the past, self-defense was inaccessible.
The team that failed to win the 2018 World Cup has changed dramatically.
Italy expanded its unbeaten streak to 29 games, one shame on the team's record, and kept its 10th clean sheet in that race.
Mancini, however, suggested that Italy still follows France, Portugal, and Belgium in the tournament's favorites list.
One of them is a World Cup champion, another is a European champion, and the other is the first to be ranked long-term, Mancini said.
They are made over time, and they are often ahead of us. But anything can happen in soccer. It is not so sure.
Latatelli's first goal was followed by an exchange of letters with Sassuolo's team-mate Domenico Berardi midway through the first half. After the break, his second came with a long and low ball, which left Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer motionless.
Ciro Immobile added a third with another long-range effort at 89 to earn his second tournament point.
Giorgio Chiellini had a goal scored in a video review earlier in the game due to handball. After that, the Italian captain came out with an injury to his left thigh.
Italy leads Group A by six points after beating Turkey 3-0 in the tournament's opening match. Wales is four points adrift of beating Turkey 2-0 in Baku.
Switzerland has one point, and Turkey has an egg. They caused us many problems, and we were not playing (at 100%), said Swiss coach Vladimir Petkovic. We were unsafe on the field, which is usually not our character. "
Latatelli's first goal was an offensive masterclass. He started with a long pass from the middle of Italy to Berardi down to the right. Berardi later cut within and passed after to Locatelli, who was running, who came in from a distance.
Manu furthermore I understand each other very well, Berardi stated.
He was smart enough to give me the ball and keep running. Added Mancini: It has been a great goal.
And to think that Locatelli has got his first place due to the injury of experienced Marco Verratti, who is expected to return to the next game against Wales.
In 23 years, Locatelli became the youngest scorer in the tournament to date. Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma saved the ball from close range by Steven Zuber in the second share.
The Azzurri should now score 30 unanswered goals in their last ten games.
Italy remains in Rome to face Wales in the final group matches, while Switzerland returns to Baku to face Turkey.
