FIFA World Cup

Italy's Euro final heroes will face Bulgaria in the first round

Roberto Mancini said on Wednesday that Italy fans will be able to cheer on the same heroes that defeated England in the Euro 2020 final as his team prepares for their first match since their victory at Wembley.

Three 2022 World Cup qualifiers will be played in the month of October. Mancini told reporters that the Azzurri will field a similar squad to the one that beat England on penalties in July.

It won't be much of a difference between tomorrow's team and that of the Euro 2020 final, which we hope can be the start of a new era of success," Mancini said

Only Leonardo Spinazzola, who suffered an injury against Belgium in the Euro quarterfinals, did not make Mancini's cut for the qualifiers.

It's a great accomplishment, but we can do better and this success should spur us on," Mancini concluded.

It's important for us to continue to enjoy our football, because you give your best when you're having fun.

There were 9000 tickets sold for the game, according to the Italian Football Association.

When Italy travels to Switzerland — the team that knocked France out of the Euro — on Sunday, they will be looking to cement their position as group leaders.
