Azzurrini defeated 4-1 by Portugal in a friendly. On Monday they can get revenge

The Italy Under 19s were not destined to get their revenge this time as they lost again to a Portugal Under 19s side, who one year ago had defeated them in the final of the European Championship. Back then the match had ended 4-3 in favour of the Portuguese and had been in the balance for all 120 minutes; however yesterday the balance only lasted for a few minutes as the Lusitanians raced into a 4-0 lead in the first half. The Azzurrini pulled one back shortly after the start of the second half, but it ultimately failed to spark a comeback.

After the first 45 minutes which had been one-way traffic ( four goals scored courtesy of a hat-trick from Fabio Silva and a goal from Embalo), during which the Italians had suffered heavily from the wing-play of their opponents, Italy came back out for the second half with a different attitude and quickly reduced the arrears. It was Salcedo who got the goal, scoring from distance, and then both Piccoli and the Captain Riccardi had good opportunities to score, but both failed to convert them.

On Monday the two teams will face each other once again, this time in Mirandela. Italy continue their preparations as they near the first round of qualification for the European Championships, which will take place in Emilia Romagna from 13 to 19 November.

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.
