Euro 2020 was a tournament that saw Italy dominate from beginning to end. Most Euro 2020 fans will agree. Roberto Mancini’s team dominated Turkey with a 3-0 win in the opening game of the competition on June 11. The Azzurri didn’t look back. Italy won seven of the tournament’s seven games to win their first European Championship win since 1968.
Many believe that the same Italian team will be able to win a second major tournament next year in Qatar, with only 16 months remaining between now and 2022 World Cup. The odds of the Italians achieving this feat next fall are still low according to soccer betting sites.
After their win over England in London, Italy’s odds of winning next year’s World Cup increased to +1100 at DraftKings. The Italians have the sixth best chance of winning the World Cup next season, but they are tied with Belgium.
Italy won a narrow victory on penalties against England to cap an impressive performance at Euro 2020. This was their first European Cup title in 1968. Italy’s dramatic victory Sunday ended a 15-year drought in major international tournaments. However, they still trail the favorites at +1100 for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. England, however, has not been shaken by their first loss in 13 matches across all competitions. They are currently ranked as the favorite with +800 odds.
