After Italy set the stage for Euro 2020 with an enthralling 3-0 win over Turkey, Euro 2020 swings back into action with a trio of matches slated for Saturday. With a goal and an assist, Ciro Immobile was the star of the show yesterday in Rome, but from Baku to Copenhagen to St Petersburg, Saturday promises to provide plenty of star power, so let's take a quick look at today's action.

We'll pass along any Roma transfer updates that may spring up, but for now, enjoy Day Two of Euro 2020!

Wales vs. Switzerland

Possible future Roma midfielder Granit Xhaka, Liverpool winger Xherdan Shaqiri and former Milan man Riccardo Rodriguez take on Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, and the rest of dragons Saturday morning in Azerbaijan. Wales and Swizterland have only met twice over the past decade, with each nation securing a victory. Xhaka and the Swiss should be favored to win but you can never count out Gareth Bale.

This matchup doesn't have the same firepower as the two that preceded it, but Denmark features everyone's favorite Roma fan, Christen Eriksen. The Inter Milan midfielder will be joined by former Roma rumor mill star Kasper Dolberg and actual former Roma player Simon Kjær as they play host to Norwich striker Teemu Pukki, who is not be confused with a certain former Mighty Duck.

Russia, much like Italy before them, is technically the away side despite playing in their homeland. And as if that weren’t tough enough, they'll face the almost impossible task of slowing down Romelu Lukaku and the rest of the top-ranked Red Devils of Belgium. With Eden Hazard and Kevin DeBruyne doubtful for this match, Lukaku and fellow Serie A standout Dries Mertens may have to do all the heavy lifting.
