Italy: Azzurri return to Coverciano, Barzagli withdraws from squad

Following their Friday evening victory over Albania in Palermo, Gian Piero Ventura’s Italy team returned to Florence this morning. The Azzurri players were scheduled to train on Saturday afternoon at Coverciano, as they now continue their preparations ahead of their Tuesday’s friendly against the Netherlands. Their forthcoming opponents will take on Bulgaria in their World Cup qualifier this evening. After lunch with the team, Andrea Barzagli left the training camp for personal reasons and will now return to his club.

THE NETHERLANDS VS. ITALY. This historical encounter has produced some great moments in the past, one coming in Buenos Aires during the 1978 World Cup. Another arrived during Euro 2000, as the Azzurri overcame their opponents on penalties to progress to the final. Interestingly, Italy won the Bronze medal in the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam, finishing behind both Uruguay and Argentina. In terms of total wins, this fixture favours Italy (eight wins, eight draws and three defeats).

As for events linked to the game, the FIGC has promoted an additional fan match between the two sides. This is will take place at the FC Amsterdam Club at 15:00 CEST on March 28. Following the first two outings in Milan and Palermo, the Amsterdam game will be the first time the fan match has travelled abroad for Italian fans.

Italy Head Coach Ventura: “A real group is emerging, we can do something significant”

After three away wins in Israel, FYR Macedonia and Liechtenstein, Gian Piero Ventura’s side picked up their first home win of this World Cup qualifying campaign. The win against Gianni De Biasi’s Albania was more than deserved as the squad with its mix of ages confirmed its maturity. “We have made a small step forwards, at the start there was too much of a desire to force things and we weren’t fluid,” said Ventura. “But, apart from their shot at the very start, we didn’t run any risks. In the second half, we saw a better Italy. A real group is emerging, there are lots of new players and lots of young players but I saw all the ingredients to do something good in the future.”

Ventura did not make a single change in the match as he was satisfied with his side who kept looking to score at 2-0 up. “We played as a team, we all defended together” he added. “There’s still lots of room to improve, the boys will understand this when they look back on things and see what they could have done.”

It was Daniele De Rossi who opened the scoring with his 20th Italy goal which sees him move level with Paolo Rossi in goalscoring history. He scored again in Palermo where he also scored two key goals in 2004 and 2015 against Norway and Bulgaria. “It’s true that whenever I come to Palermo with Italy that I score,” said De Rossi. “This is a city which deserves great football and it always behaves incredibly when we play here in the Azzurri shirt.”

Marco Verratti also enjoyed an impressive performance next to the goalscorer in midfield. “I’ve always felt good with Marco, it’s a pleasure to play with him,” added De Rossi. “This is a serious group, we approach our tasks with a great sense of responsibility and even the youngest players are always willing.”

Verratti earned the applause of the Sicilian crowd and praise from his manager for his display. “We knew that it would be a difficult match,” said the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder. “We prepared well and played well. We could have scored more but we created a lot. The result is the most important thing as we follow our path, we are a great group and few national teams are as organised as ours.”

Ciro Immobile couldn’t be anything other than happy as his header and sixth Italy goal sealed the win. “It’s always a pleasure to work with this squad and to do what the manager asks of us,” he said. “It wasn’t a simple match but we took three key points.”

Italy celebrate 2-0 win over Albania with De Rossi and Immobile goals, Friday 24 March 2017

A goal in each half saw Italy beat Albania 2-0 to stay top of Group G along with Spain ahead of the meeting in Giijon. A Daniele De Rossi penalty and Ciro Immobile’s goal allowed Gian Piero Ventura’s Azzurri to celebrate their first home win of this qualifying campaign for the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia. It was another promising display from the side after the win over Liechtenstein before the big match away in Spain.

Italy therefore stretched their unbeaten record in World Cup qualifiers to 32 (last defeat 9th October 2004 in Slovenia) and that record goes up to 55 when European qualifiers are included. At the same time, Palermo showed that it’s a city which brings fortune to the national side with that being the twelfth win there and the sixth on the bounce in the Sicilian capital. The home crowd also deserves a mention with an attendance of 33,136.

Albania were compact at the back and left Chikalleshi up top to look to hit Italy on the break. Ventura went for a 4-2-4 formation with the ‘goal twins’ Ciro Immobile and Andrea Belotti leading the line. Lorenzo Insigne and Antonio Candreva brought width while De Rossi and Marco Verratti pulled the strings. In goal was Gianluigi Buffon who was making his 1,000th professional appearance and the sponsor PUMA created a commemorative kit worn by the mascots. The centre-back partnership was the Juventus duo of Andrea Barzagli and Leonardo Bonucci while Davide Zappacosta and Mattia De Sciglio.

After an early scare with Chikalleshi going close early, Italy took the lead after twelve minutes as Belotti was pulled down by Basha at a free kick. De Rossi stepped up to face Strakosha in a form of a mini Rome Derby and he scored his twentieth Italy goal to go level with Paolo Rossi and take up eighth place in the scoring charts. The Roma man had also been the last player to score for Italy in Palermo when he found the net against Bulgaria on 6th September 2015.

As expected, Ventura’s side looked to control the ball and they also looked threatening as Zappacosta burst up the right. In the 28th minute, Belotti headed wide from a corner and Bonucci just failed to get onto an Insigne ball moments later. Verratti dropped into a deeper possession while Candreva and Insigne were always ready to press when not in possession. There was a chance to extend the lead after 43 minutes but Strakosha saved well as Belotti was set up by Verratti. At the other end, there was a half-chance for Roshi which Buffon saved.

In the second half it was the same story. Immobile almost got a shot away at close range after 52 minutes but Ajeti made a last-second intervention. After a delay due to flares being launched from a section of Albanian supporters, there were further chances for Candreva who saw an effort saved and Bonucci whose diving heading missed the target. The second goal wasn’t far away however as Immobile found the net in the 71st minute as he jumped up highest to redirect Zappacosta’s cross goalwards. It was his sixth Italy goal and the Lazio forward secured the first three points of 2017 for Italy.
