The Azzurri captain believes that the current Italian team’s atmosphere can once again propel them to success. But while he counts the holders among the favorites, he is wary of the tough competition they will face in Group B, particularly against Spain and Croatia.

“First of all, I’m delighted to be here and to represent Italy. We will undoubtedly be ready for this great event, which is a unique competition, and I was lucky enough to win the last EURO. We’re all here now to defend our title and try to do our best to reach the final. Sometimes I watch it again, and I always get emotional. That kind of emotion can never be forgotten in our lives. We’ve really made history, so we’re proud to have done something like this and still represent this country. We are all leaders in this team. Everyone has a different personality. Without a doubt, the atmosphere was special three years ago, and that’s what we are trying to recreate now. But these are all incredible guys now, so there’s no fear of not being able to replicate that. We’re a great group, and we’ve banded together well. That will certainly be important, as it was at the last EURO. Some teams are undoubtedly very strong, like France and England, but we’ll also have our say,” said Italy captain and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
