Coach Roberto Baronio has called up 19 Azzurrini players for the Under-19 friendly against France at Bologna’s Stadio Renato Dall’Ara in Bologna, Italy at 14:30 CEST. It will be a rematch of the most recent European Championship final which Les Bleus won 4-0.

As reported by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), the match will provide an opportunity to evaluate the squad ahead of the Elite Round in the European Championship which will be played between 22nd and 29th March 2017 in Belgium.

Among the news, this game will also see more experimentation with VAR (Video Assistant Referees) which was tested in online mode for the first time at the Under-19 match with Spain on 18th January in Udine.

Match officials:  Luca Pairetto will be the referee with Giorgio Peretti and Alessandro Lo Cicero his assistants. Micael Fabbri shall be the fourth official with Nicola Rizzoli and Daniele Doveri working as the video assistants.

VAR tested online in Udine as Azzurrini lose 1-0 to Spain

“The FIGC and Lega Serie A believe greatly in this project,” said the director for VAR in Italian football Roberto Rosetti. “They’re working with great seriousness and professionalism to bring forward a very important experiment for the future of football.”  Once more, it was an Italy match being used for a new VAR experiment after the senior side’s match against France on 1st September in Bari. FIFA repeated the test when the Azzurri played Germany in Milan and when the Under-21 National Team faced Denmark. VAR in its online form will continue to be experimented with when the Under-19 and Under-18 Italy teams play France on 22nd February in Bologna and Denmark in Empoli on 8th March respectively.  In terms of the match itself, the first half was balanced with Italy doing well to control the build-up play and restrict Spain. The Azzurrini started the second half strong with three chances for Cutrone as he twice went through on the goalkeeper. Carlos Aleñá scored the only goal in the 66th minute.  The coach Roberto Baronio was happy with the performance but not the result. “The thing that makes me feel calm is the continual development of the group and the football they play,” he said. “The boys did everything I asked of them, I like that they learn quickly but we certainly have to improve our finishing. I’m not happy with the result even if there weren’t points on the line.”  After Spain, there will be another test as the Under-19 side play France at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on 22nd February.

L’Italia di Baronio ospita la Spagna, a Udine fa il suo esordio la VAR on-line

 
L’amichevole di Udine sarà diretta dall’arbitro della CAN A Michael Fabbri, coadiuvato dagli assistenti Filippo Valeriani e Luca Mondin. Come quarto uomo è stato designato Fabio Maresca, mentre Daniele Orsato e Piero Giacomelli seguiranno la gara davanti ai monitor e saranno in costante contatto tramite auricolare con il direttore di gara.I video assistenti potranno aiutare la terna arbitrale a prendere una decisione corretta in presenza di situazioni chiare ed evidenti riguardanti esclusivamente gol, calci di rigore, espulsioni ed eventuali scambi di persona. Ancora una volta sarà quindi una gara di una nazionale ad essere utilizzata per una nuova sperimentazione della VAR, che ha fatto il suo esordio Mondiale lo scorso 1° settembre a Bari in occasione dell’amichevole tra gli Azzurri di Gian Piero Ventura e la Francia. La FIFA ha ripetuto il test durante le amichevoli dello scorso novembre tra le nazionali maggiori di Italia e Germania e tra le Under 21 di Italia e Danimarca. E la VAR in modalità on-line continuerà ad essere sperimentata nei centottanta minuti di altre due amichevoli che vedranno impegnate l’Under 19 e l’Under 18 azzurre, impegnate rispettivamente il 22 febbraio con la Francia allo Stadio ‘Renato Dall’Ara’ di Bologna e l’8 marzo con la Danimarca allo Stadio ‘Carlo Castellani’ di Empoli.
 
Il Responsabile per il calcio italiano del progetto VAR, Roberto Rosetti, ha definito quello di domani come il ‘secondo step’ per la Video Assistant Referees condotta dalla Lega Serie A, sperimentata per la prima volta in Italia in modalità off-line lo scorso ottobre in occasione delle gare valide per la 7ª giornata del campionato di Serie A Milan-Sassuolo e Torino-Fiorentina.
 
“E’ una partita per noi importante contro una delle nazionali più forti nel panorama europeo – sottolinea il tecnico della Nazionale Under 19 Roberto Baronio – e la sperimentazione della VAR rende questa amichevole ancor più ricca di interesse dal punto di vista mediatico”.Per il match con la nazionale spagnola, primo incontro ufficiale del 2017 a poco più di due mesi dalle gare della Fase Elite del Campionato Europeo, Baronionon potrà contare sull’attaccante dell’Inter Andrea Pinamonti, infortunatosi con la squadra di club.
