Roberto Mancini’s Italy made it a record ten wins in a row as they beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 0-3 in Euro 2020 qualifying Group J.
The Azzurri had already secured both qualification and top spot in their group.
But that was no excuse to show any mercy on their opponent, which they certainly did not.
Bosnia led by Eden Dzeko who plies his trade in Italy’s Serie A were done and dusted before the half time break.
Goals from Francesco Acerbi’s and Lorenzo Insigne’s saw the visitors take a commanding 0-2 lead at the break.

It was only seven minutes after the restart, that Andrea Belotti got on the score sheet to wrap things up and secure the record-breaking tenth consecutive win.
The Italians could have had more, but for some fine goalkeeping from Sehic,and even some fortunate referring decisions as Bosnia could have been down to ten men too.
The hosts did create a few opportunities, but AC Milan keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was up to the task and pulled off a sharp save or two.
THE WINNING RUN GOES ON! 🔥
