Osman I'm excited for this euro championship U21 azzurrini, this is one stacked squad!

ToniSamp Fourth after losing to Ecuador 1-0 after extratime. It's a game I didn't watch for lack of interest.

Get ready for the under 21 NT!

ToniSamp Pinamonti is ruled out not just of under 20 NT for the 3rd position final, but also of under 21 NT. Federico Bonazzoli is going to replace him in the under 21 NT.

The referee was consistent with a similar decision he took when he gave the second yellow to Popov. This is the reason why I knew he would disallow it as soon as I watched the instant replay.

camelface Is the U21 tournament this summer as well?

ToniSamp Ukraine defeated Italy 1-0. They were the better team and deserved to win. Italy were hardly dangerous even after Popov was sent off. In the very last minute Scamacca scored but I realized the goal would be disallowed before the decision of the VAR.

Primo Pinamonti looks deadly at times.
June 8th, 2019 12:05
roadrunner I think Scammaca deserves a higher mark. His link up play is very high quality.

ToniSamp My ratings:

Plizzari 7 - Del Prato 5.5, Gabbia 5.5, Ranieri 6 - Bellanova 6.5, Pellegrini 6.5, Frattesi 7, Esposito 6 (Bettella 5), Tripaldelli 6 - Scamacca 6, Pinamonti 7.5 (Olivieri nv)

ToniSamp Hyper crap defending from our defenders on this guy, Koite, who was indeed excellent, but should have left the penalty to a teamate.

4-2 FT

Congratulations to Mali, who tried till the very end.

Our team is good, but shows the same defensive liabilities of the under 19 team which was defeated by Portugal on year ago. Bettella, the guy who came in during the second half and was a disaster, is Mr. 7 milion euros.

ToniSamp Frattesi 4-2. Easy.
June 7th, 2019 19:12
roadrunner QUALITY!!
June 7th, 2019 19:11
ToniSamp Luckily, another mistake of their goalie lead to a penalty Pinamonti converted. 3-2

No, but if we give them the chance they score. That for sure. I didn't like the substitution. That was Italy of the 70s material.
June 7th, 2019 19:08
ToniSamp Unbelievable again, we were completely in control, wasted a few chances, then a bad blunder of one of our defenders and Mali equalized again.
June 7th, 2019 19:07
roadrunner 2-2

Mali have been the better team despite playing with 10 players.
June 7th, 2019 18:56
ToniSamp Bettella for Esposito and we go ultradefensive.
June 7th, 2019 18:49
ToniSamp 2-1

Pinamonti (onside for a matter of cms) with the help of the Malian goalie who didn't cover his post at all.
June 7th, 2019 18:36
ToniSamp The second half starts now. We have superior numbers and we can't waste this advantage. Oddly, we go on sending high balls to the middle of their area , where there is a 2 metres tall Malian...
