My favourite part was when the transmission went wonky and we lost Robbie Savage for a few minutes.

Well, that's alright, innit? The UKs finest team does it again

They've used the remote control to deliver the ball and kicking tees there for years during the Six Nations. I was glad to see it getting its run out for the Euros. Easily Italys number one sports superstar.

Italy looked really tasty. Stupidly enjoyable to watch. Either that or Turkey are a bit more shite than they let on. I expected Italy to win, but for it to be a more competitive game than that. Wales and Switzerland will both be very encouraged by how little danger Turkey were able to cause Italy.

The earliest of days but I'm feeling happily justified in putting 10 euros on Italy to win the thing. A delight to watch and a far cry from the ultra-defensive stereotypical Italy of old. Missing out on the last World Cup clearly stoked quite the flame. Absolutely loved Chiellini's reaction to making that block deep into injury time. What a man. 

Watching on iPlayer via VPN and the bastards erupting into cheers on the street whenever Italy scored a good 2 minutes ahead of my stream was rather inconsiderate though. For shame!

Bit of both, but Italy were very tidy on the ball. Turkey were sticking 2-3 players on Barella at a time and he still had a decent game. If he has more time on the ball he can carve some of these defences open this tournament. 

They played a very high line though, you have to wonder how Chiellini and Bonucci will cope against lightning quick counter attacks playing this way.

Nice to see Berardi on the big stage, he's been destined for the Italian side since forever. His decision making was pretty poor tonight though, but worked hard.

It was well behind on my TV, so I switched to my phone and casted it on to the TV and it was spot on.

What a farce.

Italy are tidy, effective and functional. Boring (to me anyway) but it will work.

I wasn't wowed with Barella, I must've been watching a different game to everyone else. They lack a bit of real flair I reckon.

Wales should really fancy themselves against Turkey. They had absolutely no plan, apart from hopelessly hit it long. It was like watching *****

How they took 4 points off France in qualification I will never know.

Chris Sutton MOTM. He went full Partridge on the 5 Live comms. Going to be the superstar of the tournament. 

What sort of freak would chose to listen to him? Jenas was deathly dull as usual on BBC  but I'd rather burst my eardrums than listen to Sutton

Who you calling a freak, weirdo? 

I would usually agree with you, but as that feed was ahead of the other one I went with it, and he delivered.

From referring to Turkey as a "wall of meat" to asking "ligue deux....is that league two?" to "one swallow doesnt make a summer...what's that in Italian?" he gave a truly Partridge esque performance, whilst Jenas was probably spouting cliches and hot takes. 

Sutton topped it all off with "Turkey is known for oil wrestling, but it is Italy who are slippery tonight" 

Five stars.

There was an amusing part in the BBC coverage where the camera panned to a Turkish woman holding a baby sleeping on her knee wearing earphones and Guy Mowbray quipped "I bet he's listening to you" at Jenas which was awkward but quite funny.

Pogba was in local dire newspaper the Daily Post he told Dan James he fancies Wales

 

If we get 3 points tomorrow we're through.

Italy looked smart and very capable last night but I wasn't that impressed. I didn't see anyone who was going to pull off a bit of magic. Turkey looked completely uninspired.

I took a look at the game on iPlayer last night as they are showing all the games in 4K HDR and it did look rather stunning.

I actually put it as a 1:1 draw on the wife’s work prediction, just as I fancied Italy for the whole thing and many winners have started a little nervously. They were very good, though.

Wales should try feeding Keiffer! The big man was starved of decent service. I reckon Big Sam will be wanking himself silly tonight at the prospect of signing him at his next destroy and exit job.
