0-1 horrible defending. Seven Italian players in their own PK area and yet the Dutch players manage to do whatever they like, pass the ball to each other and finally tap in after the save of our goalie. Amateurish.

2-0 now


Italy had a chance to score with Cudrig, but the Netherlands keep the ball possession and create opportunities after opportunities. The second goal was yet another example of poor defending. Free kick for the Netherleands, the Dutch player hits the post, another one is ready and free to tap in (again).

The final score was the Netherlands - Itay 4-2 but I stopped to watch it after the second goal.

No one impressed me, not even Sebastiano Esposito.

Today the under 20m world cup starts, the game vs Mexico at 18.00. On May 26 vs Ecuador and on May 29 vs Japan.

The coach Nicolato could not call up the best of the under 19 euro finalists, that means Tonali, Zaniolo and Kean.

Goalies: Alessandro Plizzari (Milan), Marco Carnesecchi (Atalanta), Leonardo Loria (Juventus);
Defenders: Luca Pellegrini (Cagliari), Alessandro Buongiorno (Carpi), Alessandro Tripaldelli (Crotone), Luca Ranieri (Foggia), Matteo Gabbia (Lucchese), Raoul Bellanova (Milan), Davide Bettella (Pescara), Antonio Candela (Genoa), Enrico Delprato (Atalanta);
Midfielders: Salvatore Esposito (Ravenna), Davide Frattesi (Ascoli), Domenico Roberto Alberico (Hoffenheim), Andrea Colpani (Atalanta);
Forwards: Gabriele Gori (Livorno), Marco Olivieri (Juventus), Gianluca Scamacca (Sassuolo), Andrea Pinamonti (Frosinone), Christian Capone (Pescara).

Great performance and win (2-1) on Mexico. I have no idea whether Mexico should be rated highly or not but my feeling throughout the game was that Italy were the better team.

Di Biagio and doing well are antithetical. If Di Biagio is the coach you already know the team won't be doing well, unless the team is so much better than the opponents to cancel the Di Biagio factor.

Portieri: Emil Audero (Sampdoria), Alex Meret (Napoli), Lorenzo Montipò (Benevento);
Difensori: Claud Adjapong (Sassuolo), Alessandro Bastoni (Parma), Kevin Bonifazi (Spal), Arturo Calabresi (Bologna), Davide Calabria (Milan), Fabio De Paoli (Chievo Verona), Federico Dimarco (Parma), Sebastiano Luperto (Napoli), Giuseppe Pezzella (Genoa), Filippo Romagna (Cagliari);
Centrocampisti: Francesco Cassata (Frosinone), Gaetano Castrovilli (Cremonese), Manuel Locatelli (Sassuolo), Rolando Mandragora (Udinese), Alessandro Murgia (Spal), Sandro Tonali (Brescia), Luca Valzania (Frosinone);
Attaccanti: Federico Bonazzoli (Padova), Patrick Cutrone (Milan), Simone Edera (Bologna), Gabriele Moncini (Cittadella), Riccardo Orsolini (Bologna), Vittorio Parigini (Torino).

On the contrary, I appreciate the coach of the under 20 NT Nicolato after watching the performance of the under 20 NT vs Mexico and the final of the under 19 European tournament before.

Italy - Ecuador 1-0 at halftme. Goal scored by Pinamonti. Jackson Porozo was sent off near the end of the half. It's a game I can't watch because I'm watching Sampdoria. I could switch to this game during the second half.

Italy suffered in the second half, in spite of the superior numbers, but in the end won (1-0) and now they are qualified to the 1/8 finals with one game in hand.

Italy - Japan 0-0

Nicolato fielded many reserves. Japan dominated but could not score, also thanks to our reserve goalie Carnesecchi who saved a penalty.
Thanks to this score Italy are first in their group and will face one of the best-ranked four third-placed teams.
