“It’s a very good group. The Italian team that won all 10 matches in the qualifying round is a favourite,” Swiss national team player Manuel Akanji, who plays in Group A along with the national teams of Italy, Switzerland and Wales at Euro 2020, told Blick.
Report informs that the 24-year-old defender who plays within Borussia Dortmund FC said he has good chances to move on. He said it would not matter whether the matches of the European Championship were held in Baku or London: “Our goal is to move as far as possible. While traveling to play group games is not the best option, it doesn’t matter to me. We need to showcase our game and win. Whether in Baku or in London.”
Under the Euro 2020 calendar, Wales and Switzerland will meet at the Baku Olympic Stadium on June 13. The Turkey – Wales match will be held on June 17 and Switzerland – Turkey match on June 21, both in Baku. In addition, one of the quarterfinal matches will be held in Baku. Another match of Vladimir Petkovic’s team will be against Italy in Rome on August 17.
