By Gianluca Di Francesco, Associated Press sports writerFor a game that will feature teams from across Europe, only Italy will have a chance to show its prowess against Spain in a tournament the European champions are expected to win.
Italy’s national team has already been eliminated from the Copa del Rey qualifying round, and this year’s tournament is set to start with a quarterfinal on Friday.
Italy is already the top seed in Group D, with the U.S. and Russia at the bottom.
Spain will host a quarterfinals on Sunday, and then a final on March 7.
It’s not clear whether Italy will be there, but there are several other contenders to advance.
The Italian team is set for a long-awaited victory in the final, which could determine the final two spots in the tournament.
The two teams that play in the semifinal will meet again on Sunday.
The third and fourth seeds will meet on Thursday.
Spain is also likely to have to contend with Russia, which will likely be in the semifinals for the third and fifth seeds.
Spain has the same goal of qualifying for the European Championships as Russia does, which would allow the teams to play one another in the knockout stages.
Russia won the bronze medal at the 2002 Olympics.
It is likely to qualify again for the Euros, although that is not likely until at least 2019.
In terms of what happens on the field, the only difference between the two tournaments is that the first one will be played on artificial turf, while the second one will play on grass.
Both the FIFA World Cup and Euro 2016 were played on grass, which makes it a lot more difficult for the Italians to play the Russians on the pitch.
They’ll have to rely on the tactics of the other teams.
Italy will need to take advantage of its superior technical ability to win the game, as well as an advantage in experience and tactics.
Russia is known for being one of the best teams in the world, so the Italian squad could easily find its groove in the match.
The match is scheduled to kick off at 2:30 p.m. local time (1430 GMT).
