There have been lingering doubts about the Italy side coming into this competition and a spate of hugely debilitating injuries has left Conte’s plans in a mini-crisis.

One of the main strengths of this generation of Azzurri stars has been their technical ability in midfield, with Andrea Pirlo, Marco Verratti and Claudio Marchisio forming an exciting triumvirate at the nexus of the side. However, the manager will not be able to call upon any of this trio, with the former winding his career down in the United States and the latter duo sidelined with injuries.

It means casual observers of Italy will be able to cast eyes over a few unfamiliar faces, with Conte calling up seven uncapped players for the tournament’s training squad. Subsequently, Italy, usually so reliable in these championships, look like something of an unknown quality.

A quarter-final elimination to Argentina at the 2014 World Cup was about par for Belgium in the eyes of many, as the nations golden crop of talent battled their way to the last eight. However, Wilmots’ men underwhelmed in their performances.

For all the attacking talent on display, Belgium lacked an incisive presence in the final third of the field and creativity in the middle of the park. That’s a balance the manager has been seeking to strike since and having scaled the summit of the FIFA world rankings during the qualification process, it’d be tough to say they haven’t.

Yet as odd as it may be to say, despite this ascension and the embarrassment of riches available to Wilmots in terms of individual quality, there are still signs this is a side not reaching its potential. The Red Devils still haven’t quite found a way of bringing the best out of Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku in the same setup.
