Italy kicked off the European Championship with a convincing 3-0 victory over Turkey in Group A at Rome's Stadio Olimpico with Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne scoring a goal each.

Roberto Mancini's side had been held by Turkey's defensive approach in the first half but broke through in the 53rd minute when defender Merih Demiral scored an own goal.

Italy, now unbeaten in 28 matches, doubled their lead in the 66th when Immobile scored from a loose ball.

Insigne made it 3-0 in the 79th minute.

Italy's third goal made history as it marked the first time they had scored three goals in a match at the Euros in their 39th attempt.
