Four-time world champions Italy showed why they are the team to beat in Group J after their thumping win over lowly Liechtenstein.

Italy thrashed Liechtenstein 6-0 at home in the second game of their Euro 2020 qualifiers to move clear of the chasing pack at the top of the table.

Paris Saint Germain (PSG) midfielder Marco Veratti was on the scoresheet for the Italians against Liechtenstein.

The Manchester United target Veratti doubled the lead for his side shortly after the half hour mark.

Italy had taken a 17th-minute lead through Sassuolo midfielder Stefano Sensi.

Ageless Sampdoria striker Fabio Quagliarella added a third Italy goal three minutes after the strike from the aforementioned Veratti.

Quagliarella scored another goal from the penalty spot after Liechtenstein defender was sent off for denying a goalscoring opportunity.

Young Juventus striker Moise Kean added a fifth goal on 69 minutes before substitute Leonardo Pavoletti wrapped up the heavy win with fifteen minutes left on the clock.

In the other Group J games, Finland secured their first win of the Euro 2020 qualifiers with a 2-0 away victory over Armenia, while Greece came from behind to draw 2-2 with hosts Bosnia and Herzegovina who finished the game with ten men after Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic was sent off.
