Italy forward Andrea Belotti said winning Euro 2020 is the aim for the Azzurri following their winning start.

Roberto Mancini’s Italy opened the rescheduled European Championship with a commanding 3-0 victory over Turkey in Rome on Friday.

Italy – enjoying a resurgence under head coach Mancini following their failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup – are in the midst of a 28-match unbeaten streak as they prepare for Wednesday’s clash with Switzerland in the Italian capital.

The 1968 European champions have kept a clean sheet in each of their last nine matches in all competitions, going 875 minutes without conceding since a Donny van de Beek goal for the Netherlands last October – Italy have not kept 10 consecutive clean sheets since doing so between November 1989 and June 1990.

“We believe in it, that’s our target, we hit rock bottom by not qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, and now we want to win this competition,” Torino’s Belotti told UEFA.com.

“We know we can do it, but we need to keep our feet on the ground and work together, focused on the target, in every game. That’s the only way we can reach the final.”
