Giaccherini put in four crosses and scored the opening goal on one of his four shots in Monday's 2-0 win over Belgium.
Giaccherini was deployed as part of a midfield three, and he wriggled free of the Belgian defense to expertly control a long pass and tuck it past Thibaut Courtois to open the scoring in the 32nd minute. Despite the strong start, Italy are not expected to be one of the higher-scoring sides in the tournament, so Giaccherini's play in the middle of the field will be crucial to generating offense as the tournament rolls on. If Monday's performance is any indication, he should once again play a pivotal role in Friday's match versus Sweden.
