Coming into the match, Turkey, led by Senol Gunes, were many fans’ pick as the tournament’s dark horses.

However, it didn’t take impressive Italy long to remind fans exactly why they’re one of the competition’s favourites.

After failing to break through the Turkish side’s resilient defence during the game’s first-half, an early own goal during the second 45-minutes from Juventus defender Derimal ensured the Italians led before the hour-mark.

As the flood gates opened it didn’t take striker Ciro Immobile and wide-attacker Lorenzo Insigne long to pile on Turkey’s misery.
