ITALY announced their final squad for Euro 2020 in an extraordinary TV show which saw Roberto Mancini dancing and his players providing on-stage entertainment.
It was a glamourous affair with the entire squad dressed smartly in Italy suits, while the show's host wore a tuxedo.

First, each member of the squad was called out one by one to be welcomed by the audience, the host and of course Mancini.
The Italy boss looked at ease on stage, even breaking out into a little dance – a far cry from his Manchester City days.
Many of the players seemed to foster the same spirit as they took part in various activities throughout the evening.
Gianluigi Donnarumma, Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne all had a go a freestyle rap, with their team-mates clapping from the sidelines.
And Leonardo Bonucci seemed to be having a great time playing a foosball match against Insigne, while Giorgio Chiellini beamed in the background.
Mancini will hope for the same calm and relaxed attitude from his players on the pitch.
Reaching the quarter-final is the bare minimum for the Italians, who were unbeaten in qualifying.
