Italy Head Coach Ventura praises the Under-21s: “A strong core has been built for the next ten years”

Among the Under-21 National Team players who started the European Championship with a 2-0 win over Denmark, there was a good number of players with senior experience. Various players who featured yesterday made their senior debuts this year as part of Gian Piero Ventura’ s project to oversee a generational change. The first compliments to Di Biagio came from the senior boss who was at the Krakow Stadium. “This Under-21 team has great potential,” he said to Radio Anch’io Sport. “They deservedly won even if there was a bit of tension in the first half. Too much desire can slow you down. It’s key to win the first match in a tournament like this. I think everything is in place to do well as the group and tournament are within Italy’s reach. Development is needed but the group is united with a great will to be a key player at the competition. What we saw yesterday is just a small glimpse of what this side will show in the future. I gave Di Biagio all of the players he asked for because the objective from the FIGC is to be competitive. There are at least six players who have made their debuts with the senior team, we all want to go far.”

One of the players being monitored was Domenico Berardi who featured on 31st May against San Marino for the senior team. “Let’s say that Berardi improved at the training camp, especially with his composure,” added Ventura. “His quality is unquestionable, he just needs to be more aware of his own ability. He’s proved himself at Sassuolo and they are not the biggest club as they don’t fight for the Scudetto or Champions League qualification. He needs this experience for his character and mentality. Once he makes this step, he will become a player of enormous quality.”

Moving on from the Under-21s, Ventura touched on the senior side who will be back in action for a vital match away to Spain on 2nd September. “There’s an obligation to go to the World Cup or to try to make it,” Ventura added. “For the first time, Italy aren’t top of the group and for the first time only one qualifies automatically and we have Spain in our group. We’re still level on points and they have just a four-goal advantage in goal difference. We’ll go and play for it in Spain and possibly in any eventual playoff. The most important thing however is the generational change and we have everything in place for the next European Championship to be among the favourites if not the favourite. In the next two to three years, we’ll have more experienced players. We’re building a strong base for the next ten years. We’ve given a sign for the future, we’ve created a sense of belonging.”

Italia: Per la vittoria degli Azzurri contro il Liechtenstein 6,5 milioni di telespettatori

Gli Azzurri superano i 6 milioni e mezzo: la partita di calcio Italia-Liechtenstein, valevole per le qualificazioni ai Mondiali, in onda ieri sera su Rai1, sbaraglia il prime time con 6 milioni 459 mila telespettatori e il 29.8% di share, a cui si aggiungono i 397 mila spettatori (1,8%) che hanno seguito la partita su Rai4 con la telecronaca della Gialappa’s Band.

Ancora un ottimo ascolto per l’Italia, dopo il piccolo record che ha fatto registrare la Nazionale Under 20 nella semifinale del Campionato del Mondo di categoria contro l’Inghilterra. La squadra di Evani, infatti, ha avuto un seguito di oltre 530 mila telespettatori sfiorando il 4% di share, circa 8 volte di più della media delle altre gare della Nazionali giovanili su Raisport e dato superiore anche a quelli delle qualificazioni dell’Under 21 su questo canale.

World Cup Qualifier: Belotti, Eder, Bernardeschi, Insigne and Gabbiadini goals saw Italy beat Liechtenstein

Udine is a happy venue for Italy who have never lost in Friuli. A win with five goals scored was an important result as the aim remains to catch Spain who beat FYR Macedonia 2-1 tonight. Gian Piero Ventura asked for three points from his side and they delivered by finishing the season with a brilliant performance to remain at the top of the group with Spain who Italy will face on 2nd September in Madrid.

The Stadio Friuli was coloured green, white  and red with Italy lining up in a 4-2-4 formation. Buffon was in goal, Barzagli was at the back in place of the suspended Bonucci alongside Chiellini, Darmian and Spinazzola. In midfield, De Rossi and the debutant Pellegrini were in the middle (eleventh player to make his debut under Ventura). In attack, Immobile and Belotti were the strikers with Candreva and Insigne out wide. Italy started strongly and found the net after two minutes through Candreva but the goal was incorrectly ruled out for offside.

The technical difference between the sides was clear even if Liechtenstein had broken a run of eight straight defeats with a draw against Finland. Italy were proactive with the need to win and win well weighing down upon them and they created a lot but were a bit imprecise in attack. In the ninth minute, a passage of play sent Immobile through but his shot was too central and Jehle saved down low. There were similar moments in the 27th minute as Insigne was denied and another in the 29th as some good play between Belotti and Immobile didn’t come off.

There was a moment of fear for the Azzurri in the 31st minute as Polverino narrowly missed Buffon’s post from 30 metres. Four minutes later, Italy took the lead through a piece of Lorenzo Insigne magic after he previously scored in Udine in a friendly against Spain and it was his first goal in a qualifying match.

There were no changes from the manager Ventura at half time. The Azzurri only needed seven minutes to double their lead. Insigne played a through-ball to Belotti, who scored his fourth goal for Italy, three of which have come against Liechtenstein. Two minutes later, Immobile hit the post from close range, before Jehle got his hands on the ball.

The first substitution took place after 15 minutes, with Bernardeschi coming on for Candreva. The second came six minutes later with Immobile making way for Eder. The latter entered the spotlight a little later, after 28 minutes his goal was disallowed for offside but a minute later he picked up on a cross from Belotti to give the Azzurri a 3-0 lead.

Gabbiadini then came on for Belotti and shortly after Bernardeschi scored the goal to make it 4-0 from long range, before Gabbiadini himself set the final 5-0 scoreline by capitalising in injury time on a precise assist from Spinazzola.
