Jamie Carragher hails Italian defence

Former England international Jamie Carragher lavishes praise on Italy's back three following their 2-0 win over Belgium in their opening Group E match of Euro 2016.

Former England international Jamie Carragher has lavished praise on Italy's back three following their 2-0 win over Belgium at Euro 2016 on Monday night.

Italy entered the Group E match as the underdogs against a Belgium team that included seven Premier League players, but Antonio Conte's side ground out an impressive result in Lyon.

Carragher reserved special praise for Italian duo Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini and has claimed that the Juventus pair should be on Chelsea's wishlist in this summer's transfer window.

Italy will continue their Group E campaign against Sweden on Friday afternoon.
