Serie A stars lead Euro 2020
The EM is now in full swing and one league in particular is very well represented.
Italy started the tournament with a 3-0 win against Turkey.
The Italians looked exceptionally dominant in the game and players like Lorenzo Insigne, Ciro Immobile and Leonardo Spinazzola stood out. Manuel Locatelli's brace against Switzerland also received a lot of applause.
Roberto Mancini receives a lot of love from his country and the expectation is that the country will lead the group with the maximum points after beating Wales tonight in Rome.

Italy's Spinazzola and Locatelli each hold one of Roma and Sassuolo.
Gosens is now the ninth player to receive this award. Christian Eriksen from Denmark also received the honor in the game against Finland. The Inter midfielder collapsed and fought for his life before being released from hospital yesterday.
“Football is a nice game and Christian plays it wonderfully,” said UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin.
