The Italian Under-21 National Team’s final match of the season will be on Tuesday 29 May against France at the Stade Léo Lagrange in Besançon with kick-off at 21:00.  Head Coach Luigi Di Biagio says it will be “A test at a high level.”

  • The two national teams last met two years ago on 2 June 2016 in Venice with France winning 1-0. The head-to-head record favours the Azzurrini however. In the past 16 matches, Italy have won seven, drawn five and lost four.

Azzurrini await Norway clash. Mancini: “Materazzi is my idol.”
