After defeating the host Armenia and giving the false hope that this team could qualify by defeating Spain in the final game of the group stage, the Italian under 19 NT lost to the Spanish team 2-1. The Italian team had even scored the first goal with Merola and were leading at the end of the first half but in the second half Spain scored two thanks to one own goal and one penalty.

Ricardo Sottil looks like a talent.

A poor performance while holding Ireland Republic 0:0 in Dublin last Thursday evening.

It seems to me this is a mediocre squad compared with recent ones which were not exactly full of talent themselves.

Italy are doing an England in overrating mediocre players badly.

Anyway, at least there is a proper coach instead of Calamity Di Biagio.

Another unimpressive performance and a fortunate 1:0 win in Armenia.

Unless there is a significant improvement, this team won't qualify.
