The Armenians had a perfect double journey in June, the last date FIFA (International Football Federation) set aside for duels between teams in the 2018/2019 season.In the third round of qualifying for Euro 2020 they received the Liechtenstein team and scored 3-0 in a real massacre. They dominated the match from start to finish, had 31 finishing opportunities sent 14 of them on target and did more than necessary to get their first win in the match after they started losing to Finland (2-0, home) and Bosnia and Hezergovine (2 to 1, away).However, the best result came in the sequence, which was the success against the Greeks in the house of rivals, by 3 to 2. In this case, the performance was not so good, but the victory against the rivals took the Armenians to third position. in the leaderboard. They are three points behind the Finns, deputy leaders. It is the fight that remains since the first place will hardly leave the hands of the Italians.
The Azurra squad has clearly evolved following its failure to seek a place in the 2018 Russian World Cup. It has been making an impeccable run in the qualifiers for Euro 2020.After beating Finland (2-0) and Lienchenstein (6-0) in their domains on matchday one, they continued their 100% success in June by beating Greece (3-0 away) and Bosnia and Herzegovina (2 to 1, home).The most surprising aspect of this start of the qualifying round is perhaps the fact that the Italians have the best attack of the match with 13 goals scored. The average of over three goals per match certainly escapes completely the characteristics of the country and also of coach Roberto Mancini. In this case, it can be clearly attributed to the fragility of the group’s rivals, even though the composition of the keys showed a theoretical balance between them.
