Coming into this evening’s clash against Bosnia, Italy had already qualified for Euro 2020 but needed this win to confirm their qualification, and to make a new record of 10 straight wins.
The Bosnia team was led by Arsenal’s Kolasinac, Pjanic and skipper Edin Dzeko whiles Roberto Mancini maintained a very strong side with the likes of Bonucci, Florenzi, Barella, Jorginho and Insigne starting against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Friday night at Bilino Polje.
A fine first half performance ensured that Italy were comfortably leading Bosnia-Herzegovina 2-0. Francesco Acerbi broke the deadlock for the Azzurri after smashing home from inside the box to give Italy a deserving 1-0 lead by the 21’ minute.
Lorenzo Insigne placed a low effort at the bottom corner to double Italy’s lead 16 minutes after Acerbi goal.
On the 52nd minute, Andrea Belotti made it 3-0 for Italy following his perfect run onto a through ball from midfield, his one-time strike went straight into the net.
Italy have already qualified for the 2020 Euros with a game in hand. Italy set a new record of 10 consecutive wins, a better of the one they did in 1938-39 under Vittorio Pozzo, where they won all 9 straight games.
