Mancini says Italy will focus on attack tonight

Italy is set to play against Greece tonight in Athens, as part of the EURO 2020 Qualifiers.

Italy national team coach Roberto Mancini has said his team will focus on the attack tonight, as his team plays against Greece in Athens.

The game is part of the UEFA EURO 2020 Qualifiers.

“We have many talented strikers, so have to evaluate fitness levels at this time and whoever is in the best shape will play,” Mancini’s words were echoed by Football Italia.

“We tried the False 9 system before and it always went well, so we’ll see over these two games what we decide to do.”

“Belotti and Quagliarella are in a way fairly similar and yet also different,” he added.

“They’ve both had very good seasons, Andrea improved a lot towards the end of the campaign and so did Leonardo Pavoletti.”

“We also have Moise Kean, so we’ll see,” he said.

“Greece and Bosnia are very different teams. Greece is technically-gifted and plays very good football, so the key will be stopping them from getting into their rhythm and playing their way.”

Mancini explained: “I believe when things are going well, it’s better not to fix something that doesn’t need fixing.”

“I don’t know if Oriali will stay, but I see no reason to change.”

“They have done really well and reached the semi-final,” the coach added.

“It’ll be tough, as Ukraine are a very good side, but everyone in the Under-20 side and their coaching staff deserve credit.”

“I already worked with Andrea Pinamonti at Inter, although clearly, he was much younger, and he has improved a lot. He has great quality,” the manager concluded.
