Speaking in an interview with Italian newspaper Il Messaggero, the 28-year-old Spanish midfielder looked ahead to tomorrow evening’s match between the Azzurri and Luis Enrique’s side.
What a great match. These are two teams that play football the way I like to, I don’t know who will win. It’s an open game, there’s no favourite.
The Spaniard thought that tomorrow’s game would be won or lost in the midfield.
The Azzurri are strong, they have a very good midfield, but so do we. I’m sure that’s where the challenge will be.
Finally, Luis Alberto suggested that the winner of tomorrow’s match would go on to win the final on Sunday.
And I’m convinced that whoever gets through and goes to the final will win this European Championship.
Roberto Mancini’s Italy have performed incredibly well in this summer’s tournament, winning every game so far, even if they needed 120 minutes to beat Austria in the Round of 16.
Unfortunately for Immobile, he has struggled to make a strong impact in Euro 2020, only scoring in the group stage wins over Turkey and Switzerland.
The winner of tomorrow’s game will face either England or Denmark in the final on Sunday.
