Two friendlies on Italian soil will then follow, as Italy face San Marino at Cagliari’s Sardegna Arena on Friday 29 May (20:45 CET KO), and subsequently the Czech Republic at Bologna’s Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on 4 June (20:45 CET KO).
The friendly in the Emilian capital will be Italy’s final appointment before the group stages of UEFA EURO 2020 begin, with Italy kicking the entire tournament off against Turkey at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome (12 June). The Azzurri will then face Switzerland (17 June) and Wales (21 June) in their quest to make it out of Group A.
