Italy faced Bosnia & Herzegovina on Tuesday evening in a Euro 2020 qualifier in Turin.

The Azzurri have gotten off to a great start in their group, winning their first three games with a goal difference of +11.

Bosnia, however, represents their biggest threat to Group J domination - although they're off to a bad start.

Roberto Mancini's side know that a win at home will make them incredibly strong favourites to win the group.

They got off to poor start, however, as Edin Dzeko put the away side ahead on 32 minutes.

Something needed to be done after Italy came out for the second half 1-0 down.

Step up Lorenzo Insigne.

The 28-year-old Napoli captain scored one of the volleys of the season on 49 minutes with a sensational strike.

Insigne celebrates with teammates.

As the ball came over from a corner, Insigne struck it perfectly on the volley from the edge of the box, sending the ball into the back of the net as straight as an arrow.

What a hit that is.

You can't strike a volley more perfectly than that - it's a fantastic goal from Insigne.

Italy would eventually get the win they wanted, too, as Marco Verratti settled things in the 86th minute.

It means that they've won all four of their opening games, as well as achieving the joint-highest goal difference along with Group I's Russia.

Mancini's side have also achieved 50 home games without defeat, too, with 39 wins and 11 draws in that spell.

In all, things are looking up for the Azzurri after missing out on last year's World Cup - the first time that had happened in over 50 years.

Mancini has them back on track and they may just prove to be a contender for next year's Euros.
