Because less players equal more space to pass and move

Italian Football Needs Quality Players for the Next Challenge

Italy is preparing for their first Euro 2024 qualifier against England, their most recent rivals, and Coach Roberto Mancini stressed the importance of having experienced players for such a difficult match.

The Azzurri and the Three Lions have sometimes met for the past few years. Their most famous encounter was the tense Euro 2020 final at Wembley, which ended 1-1 after extra time, and Italy won on penalties.


The Azzurri were pushed to their limits in the match, and their next two Nations League matches were also close, drawing 0-0 in England and winning 1-0 in Italy. The two teams will now compete twice in the Euro 2024 qualifiers, posing two more obstacles to overcome. Mancini said on Wednesday that the team "need people who know this type of competition" as he looked ahead to the game against England on March 23.
"Initially, a curious selection given that he is only 25 and has just returned from a cruciate ligament rupture, but Chiesa's impact on his national team cannot be denied. The Juventus winger has earned 40 caps for Italy and scored in both the Round of 16 and Semifinals of the Euro 2020 tournament to help his country win again. Chiesa is one of Italy's best-attacking threats. His recent return to Juventus has demonstrated that the 25-year-old is still a dynamic and decisive player despite suffering such a severe injury.
Mancini and his teammates will benefit significantly from his return to the Azzurri team as they attempt to recover from their recent World Cup qualifying loss. Therefore, Italian football needs more such players to overcome this challenge. With upcoming tournaments, the skill level of players in the Italian football team will be subjected to a major test with fans expecting a good outcome.
