Hello there! After Wales' splendid 2-0 victory over Turkey, we now turn our attention to tonight's other game in Group A, Italy versus Switzerland. Roberto Mancini's men sent out a statement in Friday night's memorable opener, putting Turkey to the sword 3-0. Tonight the Azzurri will be targeting the victory that will seal their place in the competition's last-16 with a game to spare. Can Switzerland - who drew 1-1 with Wales last time out - spring a surprise to keep themselves in contention though? Kick-off is now just an hour away, team news follows next.

Full-time: Italy are the first team in the European Championships to progress to the last-16 of the tournament following this comprehensive victory over a bewildered Switzerland. Europe, beware!

GOAL! Italy 3-0 Switzerland (Ciro Immobile): His performance deserves a goal and now Immobile grabs it, even if the goalkeeper should do better to keep his low shot out. Italy win it back in midfield and Immobile is allowed to pounce before striking into the bottom corner from 20 yards. It's another statement of intent from the Azzurri.

Into the last 10 minutes here and Italy are still very much in control. It has been a chastening night for the Swiss and they'll now need to beat Turkey on the final group game to have any chance of progressing in the tournament.

Have a look at Immobile's chance a few minutes ago...

Yellow card! Embolo goes in late on Barella, who requires treatment, and the Switzerland forward is cautioned to no one's surprise.

Just wide! Italy are cutting through the Switzerland defence like a knife through butter, as Chiesa races through the middle and finds Immobile on the left side of the penalty area. He's searching for the far corner but drags it wide.

Chance! As Switzerland throw bodies forward in desperate search of a goal, they're going to leave themselves short at the back. Bonucci's ball out of defence finds Immobile but he spurns the opportunity by firing wide of the far post.

Great desire by Acerbi to block Shaqiri's powerful shot! But it matters little as the Liverpool forward was in an offside position.

Shot! Italy break rapidly, with Jorginho threading a nice pass down the middle, picking out Berardi. His shot is just wide of the near post.

Switzerland chance! Donnarumma's clean-sheet is still intact as Switzerland overload the Italian defence, Zuber picking up the ball in space down the left but his angled shot is well saved by the goalkeeper.

Over! Finally, a shot from the Swiss. Following a nice pass from substitute Gavranovic, Shaqiri, in a pocket of space, blazes over the top.

Tottenham and Juventus are being linked with the Sassuolo midfielder, but just how much is he worth now after this performance?
