Are Italy set to steal the spot-light at Euro 2016 this summer?

Although this year’s European Championships are arguably yet to explode with all the excitement and goal-scoring action you’d perhaps expect from such a hotly anticipated summer spectacle, Euro 2016 has nonetheless served to delight thus far.

 

Spain have seemingly re-established their growing dominance upon the international scene of late, France look equally threatening with the likes of Dimitri Payet and co. running the show up-top, and even England have shown glimpses of quality throughout the group-stage fixtures of the tournament.

 

Italy however, have somehow taken many international football fans by surprise this summer with their dogged – yet rather effective approach out on the field…

 

 

Some are now clearly expecting Antonio Conte’s courageous outfit to really go all the way at Euro 2016…

 

 

…even if others have been left slightly surprised by this supposedly ‘weak' Italian side…

 

 

That hasn’t stopped a few critics from having their say over the Azzurri however…

 

 

…whilst some simply can’t take their eyes of this summer’s finals no matter what…

 

 

So then, can Italy really go on to prove their early doubters wrong and triumphantly go all the way this summer?

 

 

…despite a fair amount fierce competition still standing in the Italians’ way at Euro 2016 within the grand scheme of things…

 

 

…many say yes!
