The 54-year-old has brought the Azzurri back from the dead since his appointment in 2018.
In a big result at the Renzo Barbera Stadium, hosts Italy absolutely mauled Armenia with a scoreline of 9-1! Roberto Mancini must be the happiest man on the night as his side have now increased their winning run in the qualifiers to 10 games.
Nicolo Zaniolo and Ciro Immobile scored a brace each in the big victory. With the win, Italy have issued a warning to the other teams in the UEFA Euro 2020.
Incidentally, the win for Italy is also their biggest since their 9-0 win against USA in 1948. “You don’t score nine goals in an international match by chance,” quoted Roberto Mancini.
Italy who stands at the top of their group with 30 points have won all their games. Having already sealed a place at the Euros next year, the Azzurri are in relief.
“Let’s enjoy these 10 games we have won in the group because it is something that has never happened,” said a jubilant Roberto Mancini.
“We have six months to prepare for the European Championships and we need to improve a few things,” he added, as per Sports Mole.
Roberto Mancini was appointed Italy boss in 2018 and it has been a superb venture so far. In his 20 games as the manager, the Azzurri have bagged 14 wins and four draws. That accords the 54-year-old’s win record with the team to an excellent 70%.
On the other hand, Immobile who was the star on the night went on to applaud Mancini for his efforts. “I want to thank the coach for the opportunity.”
“Things have finally been fixed in the national team, and I was very keen to make the most of it,”he added.
“We’re looking forward to see who we are drawn against. We are aware of our strengths and I hope to win something because the team deserves it,” he concluded.
