One win, one defeat and a draw. This was how Roberto Mancini’s side did during their recent three friendlies against Saudi Arabia, France and the Netherlands. These were the National Team’s final fixtures ahead of their Nations League opener in September.
Italy’s match on Friday once again saw a good turnout in terms of television spectators, as was also the case against Saudi Arabia (6,200,000 – 23.8 percent share) and France (5,961,000 – 26.96 percent share). Screened live on Rai 1, there were a total of 6,200,000 people watching, which ensured that it was the most-watched show that evening.
