Italy is also excited with rotations

Mancini's team does not lose its identity despite the changes and beat Moldova 6-0. El Shaarawy signed a double and Caputo 'wet' in his premiere.


Italy proved to have an offensive and defined identity by beating Moldova 6-0 in the friendly of Franchi de Florencia. Mancini did many rotations, giving space to those who normally do not have it, but despite the new faces, the style of his team was always the same as in recent months.The match was practically over at the end of the first half, in which the Azzurri managed to score up to five goals (and it was the third time in their history that they did so before a break, the first since 1987). Cristante opened the can after a corner from Bonaventura and Caputo made it 2-0 receiving a great ball from Biraghi, celebrating his debut with the Nazionale at the age of 33 in a big way.

El Shaarawy scored his first international double with an outside-foot shot and an empty header, and an unfortunate own goal by Posmac completed the hand. With this result, obviously, the pace of the game dropped a lot in the second half, but the Italians also made it 6-0 with Berardi, who pushed a Grifo cross between the sticks.

Ahead did not have a difficult opponent, but Italy many times in recent years suffered more than necessary in games like this. Mancini today added 17 consecutive games without losing and the illusion around his project continues to grow. The disasters of 2017 are a distant memory.
