Italy-England 1-2, Retegui’s first goal is not enough: Rice and Kane conquer Maradona

Mateo Retegui he’s there, he scores on debut and we’re all happy that we can at least work on a real centre-forward. It’s a consolation for Retegui, but for now it makes Mancini happy, despite the defeat against himEngland, in a festive “Maradona” that clings to another blue, not that of Naples, but only for one evening. Here they will have the opportunity to celebrate. theItaly he does not celebrate, because he leaves England with a win that they lacked in seven games against the Blues.

Sooner or later it had to happen. It is the first of a long journey that will take the team to Euro 2024 in Germany: courage and patience are needed, after all this is Mancio’s second reconstruction. The first fall hurts but doesn’t kill, because already on Sunday Italy has the possibility to win in Malta and to grow more, in the classification and as a movement. Something has to be reviewed, because you don’t live only on the center forward, who has just started, although with a goal on his debut, the filming with the new shirt, which he previously ignored. His goal at the start of the second half breaks England’s dominance, which was evident throughout the first half, with goals from rice I kane in the penalty (handball by Di Lorenzo), but not only.

The ball was often at the feet of the English, while Italy went chasing on their own. Mancio bet to block the European Cup, nine out of eleven were part of that expedition, the other was Pellegrini, who narrowly missed out, and precisely, Retegui, born in our house and there was no player from Juventus on the pitch, which hasn’t happened in 29 years. First part without story and second part more forceful. Everyone has stepped up, from Verratti to Pellegrini, through the central players who had danced a lot in the first half. Gnonto and Politano were encouraged, Pellegrini showed his qualities before departing with the non-trivial assistance of Retegui. There is work to be done, but not everything we saw tonight is to be thrown away.
