Lazio forward Ciro Immobile was a key player during the Italian national team’s statement Euro 2020 win over Switzerland.

Although the forward missed multiple high percentage goal-scoring opportunities over the course of the match, the Biancocelesti talent did score a late goal that secured Italy a second consecutive 3-0 win to open up its Euro 2020 run.

Immobile also made history with the goal, as he became the first talent since Christian Vieri in the 2002 World Cup to score in Italy’s opening two matches of a major international tournament. The striker had already scored in Italy’s Euro 2020 opener against Turkey.

Immobile is now well among the early favorites to finish as the Euro 2020 top goal-scorer. This will surely depend on just how far Italy manages to go in this tournament.

The Lazio star will now be aiming to score his first-ever goal in the knockout stage of a major international tournament, which he is well capable of doing considering his recent superb form.
