List of players belonging to youth national teams 2016/2017

Not the ones we'd need, that means the forwards/attacking midfielders. Not according to what I watched in the last u19 and u17 euro tournaments. Hopefully there are players who escaped the radars of FIGC. It often happens!
It looks like goalies are again our best product, thanks to Donnarumma and Meret.

PS the list is in progress, I also have to update most of the transfers

Its a fine list of propsects of those I seen (atleast 4-5 of these should become top players), but Conti weakens it, he looks like an average utlity player whenever I seen him.



I would rather include Moise Kean in there. And if couple of youth CL games I seen, the other 16 year old in Juve Fabrizio Caligara looked made to go all the way in center midfield.

yeah..conti was the weakest player i posted. I'm not sure about kean. He looks a bit raw. He might fizzle out. Balotelli looked a lot better at his age.

Orsolini looks rather special.

Orsolini looks interesting but it's just a clip.

Another talent from Serie B to look at is Morosini who just joined Genoa. AM/SS.


And ofcourse Kean is bit raw, he is 16, pretty much all above players mentionned are mostly 20 or above, except for Donnarumma and Chiesa.

Orsolini is 19.Same with DiMarco and Pellegrini

With Kean i've seen quite a bit of him and theres nothing about him that makes me particularly excited. I wouldnt be shocked if his career went nowhere.

Doesn't look like the type of player Italy is famous for but I guess even it will start producing advanced wingers like rest of world.

Heheheh, good one.

Anyway, the challenge for a lot of these players will be to develop skills other than dribbling and crossing. Only the very best advanced wingers justify their roles on a team whereas a lot of teams play systems that don't involve this type of player. We need more players comfortable at the trequartista and link-up forward role (wow, that was a blast from the past, no one plays 442 anymore!), players who can play in the centre.

These past selections saw a lot of wingers get ignored because of tactical reasons and there is good reason for this in a lot of cases. The same challenge will apply to Berardi. The days of the Totti, Del Piero, Pirlo type of player are long gone it seems: smart, positionally central creative players.

I have the feeling Inter and Juventus made a huge bet and might have wasted a lot of money on Gagliardini and Caldara.

Hopefully it will turn out like last time both if us bought two players from same club. Ours became top few best CB, and theirs an unchangeable frog lol.
