Italy begin their journey to retain the European crown against Sylvinho’s Albania on Saturday, June 15 2024 in Dortmund.

Although the Azzurri are the defending European champions, they have failed to qualify for the World Cup for two editions running. Their coach, Luciano Spalletti, took charge of the team in August 2023 after Roberto Mancini’s sudden resignation.

The Azzurri have won five games from eight under their new coach, drawing twice and losing once.
