This shirt was worn by Lorenzo Insigne during the Euro 2020 game between Italy and Switzerland which took place in Rome, “Stadio Olimpico”, on June 16th 2021. Italy defeated Switzerland 3-0. Again, Italy impressed. After opening this European Championship with one commanding 3-0 win, Roberto Mancini now has a pair of them to point to when asked about the Azzurri’s credentials. This victory over Switzerland – won by two fine Manuel Locatelli goals and a late Ciro Immobile strike – was every bit as impressive as that demolition of Turkey and stretched their unbeaten run under Mancini’s stewardship to 29 games. Insigne was called up for the first time for the Italy senior team in September 2012 at age 21 by coach Cesare Prandelli for Italy’s 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against Bulgaria and Malta. He made his senior debut on 11 September 2012 in the World Cup qualifier match against Malta in Modena, coming on as a replacement for Alessandro Diamanti. On 14 August 2013, Insigne scored his first goal in a friendly against Argentina, which ended in a 2–1 loss at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Insigne was named in Cesare Prandelli’s 30-man provisional squad for the 2014 World Cup and was eventually picked in the final 23-man squad. In Italy’s last warm-up match, against Fluminense in Brazil ahead of their World Cup opener against England, Insigne and his teammate Ciro Immobile scored five goals, with Insigne scoring two. On 20 June, Insigne made his debut in the 2014 World Cup in Italy’s second group match, against Costa Rica, replacing Antonio Candreva in the second half of the 1–0 defeat. However, this was Insigne’s only appearance in the tournament, as Italy was eliminated in the group stage. On 31 May 2016, Insigne was named to Antonio Conte’s 23-man Italy squad for UEFA Euro 2016. He made his first appearance of the tournament on 22 June, coming off the bench in Italy’s final group match, which ended in a 1–0 defeat to the Republic of Ireland, striking the post and later receiving a yellow card in injury time. In the round of 16, at the Stade de France in Paris on 27 June, he came off the bench once again to help set-up Graziano Pellè’s 91st minute volley to give the Azzurri a 2–0 win over defending champions Spain. On 2 July, he made a further substitute appearance in the quarter-final fixture against Germany and scored Italy’s first penalty in the resulting shoot-out, which ended in a 6–5 loss to the reigning World Cup champions. In June 2021, Insigne was included in Italy’s squad for UEFA Euro 2020 by manager Roberto Mancini. In the opening match of the tournament on 11 June, he scored Italy’s final goal in a 3–0 win over Turkey. On 2 July, he scored Italy’s second goal of the match in a 2–1 win over Belgium in the quarter-finals of the competition, with a curling right-footed effort from outside the box following an individual run; for his performance, he was named star of the match by UEFA, while the goal later placed second in UEFA’s “2020–21 Goal of the Season,” behind only Mehdi Taremi’s overhead kick goal for Porto against Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-finals. On 11 July, Insigne won the European Championship with Italy following a 3–2 penalty shoot-out victory over England at Wembley Stadium in the final, after a 1–1 draw in extra-time; Insigne started the match, but was replaced by Andrea Belotti late in the second half of regulation time. Throughout the competition, Insigne made more solo runs into the penalty area (16) than any other player.
