Mourinho makes Italy Euro 2020 prediction

Jose Mourinho praises Roberto Mancini and expects Italy to reach the semi-finals at Euro 2020.

The new Roma coach wrote a team-by-team guide ahead of Euro 2020 for The Sun, suggesting he expects big things from the Azzurri in the tournament that begins next week.

"I will be looking for my Roma players Leonardo Spinazzola, Bryan Cristante and Lorenzo Pellegrini — of course, I'm going to be focusing on them," the Special One wrote.

"But Italy is a team with a good mixture of good experienced players, guys that know how to win. They're going to be strong.

"Roberto Mancini is a very experienced manager – he spent 20 years coaching in the best leagues in the best countries.

"So he's more than ready and he's showing already in the qualification phase how good he is. The team have improved a lot under him.

"Italy have talented players, but they have a very good tactical knowledge. They're able to play in different ways.

"Roberto is giving them a little bit more attacking quality but they don't lose their nature and they know how to compete.

"I think this is the best quality of them as a team. It's difficult to find weaknesses.

"I think they will be always in the final four."
