Euro 2020 was delayed by a year due to the pandemic, but Europe is now ready for a summer of football.
24 nations are going for glory with games spread all over the continent, and Italy are looking to win the Euros for a second time after lifting the trophy on home soil in 1968.
The Azzurri will be looking to get off to a good start against Turkey, who could be something of a surprise package in Group A.

Turkey vs Italy is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off tonight - Friday, June 11, 2021.
The match will take place at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy, hosting 25-45 per cent of the stadium capacity.
