    But otherwise I'm quite satisfied - another game, another different line up. Good to see more players getting chances, I am starting to get excited about this young Azzurri after a long time. Based on the 3 line ups and adding the absentees, I can see this Azzurri squad shaping up in a 4-3-3 formation:

    Attack: Insigne/Chiesa - Balotelli/Immobile/Belotti - Bernardeschi/Chiesa/Verdi/Politano/Berardi
    Midfield: Cristante/Bonaventura - Jorginho/Gags - Verratti/Pellegrini/Florenzi/Chiesa
    Defence: Spinazzola/Criscito/De Sciglio - Romagnoli/Caldara - Bonucci/Rugani - Zappacosta/Dumbo
    GK: Perin/Sirigu/Donna

    The main problem is that this team/squad is too young and lacks experience. Looks like Jorginho and Insigne are key to Mancini's plan, Italy's best two players IMO, both neglected by that asshole Ventura. From these 3 experimental games, 3 kids have clearly stood out - Perin, Chiesa and Romagnoli all took their chance and looked at home with the Azzurri shirt. Just for that, these friendlies were more than worth it. I would love to see the following Italy starting line up in Euro 2020:

    Insigne - Balotelli - Bernardeschi
    Cristante - Jorginho - Chiesa
    Spinazzola - Romagnoli - Bonucci - Florenzi
    Perin

    A new cycle may finally be starting...
    Way too offensive lineup?

    Jorginho is the only defensive player in addition to the defence line? Chiesa is more close to forward than midfielder? I don't see Bernardeschi and Chiesa on the pitch at the same time, at least not in the same flank.

    I like Balotelli but I'm amazed how dreadful Immobile is for Italy, I've seen him live against Milan he really is a complete forward a very smart player who gives his team mates space, holds up the ball excellently and can finish. If Mancini can solve the Immobile puzzle I think Italy can do well considering how woeful other national teams are.

    Italia currently 2-0 up to France in the U19 semi finals. Kean's looking real good so far.

    Edit: Italy will face Portugal in the final this Sunday.

    That’s an interesting squad. Pellegri and Zaniolo have barely played professionally.

    Calling up Zaza is a joke, and I want Chiellini to GTFO. Other than that no complaints. We're deep at winger, so I won't cry over leaving Politano out. Not calling up Florenzi and declaring Zappacosta our RB is a mistake.

    Alonso is one of the best wingbacks right now, he deserves to play in front of Emerson.

    Alonso is a match winner, even though he is a LB, always come out with very important contribution. Very important player for Chelsea especially in the attack.

    Yeah I’m not debating whether Alonso deserves to start for Chelsea I’m debating whether Emerson deserves to be in the Italy squad.

    Just realized no Verratti. Is he injured (again), or is this Mancini being fed up with the fact he always flops with the national team?

    Way too many youth in that squad, looks like Mancini is serious about rebuilding. The problem with that strategy is that a couple of losses and the pressure goes through the roof. Everyone will forget the youth development, and there will be an axe on Mancini's head. On the other hand, the way Italy have ignored youth and recent disappointments with mediocre players, I guess Mancini has a small window of opportunity. This is a big risk big return strategy.

    Also, its great to see a kid like Zaniolo make it to the squad straight from primavera/azzurrini. Everyone seems to rate this kid so highly, and it good to see the Azzurri looking at the Azzurrini as a proving stage. Zaniolo may not play any minutes, but just training with the Azzurri is rewarding enough.

    Injured, he had an operation before the season and has been recovering since then.
