Currently, only Italy and Belgium have finished their Euro 2020 qualification campaigns with a 100% record. It’s just another sign of how quickly things have turned around since failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

Aside from winning all 10 games, the Azzurri only conceded four goals in Group J and scored a remarkable 37 in the process.

Clearly things are on the up, and there’s now no reason why a first European championship since 1968 isn’t possible for Italy.
