Here is an interesting detail.  If we were to look for promising Italian forwards for the National team, we are in deep trouble.  Get this one,  there is only 1 Italian player among the  Serie A Top 6 scorers up to Round 13 and that is 37-years old Udinese forward Antonio Di Natale with 7 goals, we have 3 Argentinians: Tevez, Icardi, and Higuain.  1 from Spain: Jose Callejon, and 1 from France: Jeremy Menez

Is there a crisis among Italian forwards?  Next higher Italian scorers  in Serie A this season are Genoa forward Alessandro Matri with 6 goals, Parma forward Antonio Cassano with 5 goals.  Juventus forward Pablo Osvaldo with 5 goals (born in Argentina, but getting his Italian citizenship through his great-grandfather).

Let’s see how the Italian forwards do in the next Serie A games and whether it is an alarm sign for Italy Head Coach Antonio Conte.

Note: Higuain still have to play on Monday 1 December and might increase his goals.
