Tomorrow (June 11) the European Championship starts with the challenge between the Azzurri and Turkey at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

The selector has written an open letter to his nation focusing on football’s ability to ward off stress and bad thoughts.

In his lengthy post, Mancini has said he hopes to make people happy and entertained during football matches.

He emphasized that in such big events, even those who do not like football, attend the matches, therefore this sport becomes a reference point for everyone.
