Malta-Italy, the probable formations: Retegui towards the confirmation. In defense it’s Romagnoli’s turn

Italy left on the night of Naplesaddress Maltawhere on Sunday, in Valletta, he will take the field for the second qualifying match Euro 2024 in Germany And you can no longer be wrong, given the defeat -1-2- in his debut against England, who had not beaten Italy in seven games. Mancini immediately loses a couple of players (in addition to giving up Dimarco and Chiesa), who left the retreat after the “Maradona” game: Bonucci and Barella.

Italy, the probable line-up against Malta: the news

Changes in sight for the match against Malta. Most likely, the coach Left handed will restart from Mateo confirmation in advance Retegui, who needs to play and improve understanding with peers. The problem, as you know, is the offense, which has shown only partial signs of awakening, and the sooner a real, starting center forward is available, the better for national, waiting for the return of Immobile, the only Italian who has scored continuously for a few years. Alternatively, there is Scamacca (who took over from Verratti in Napoli in the last few minutes), he too will have to put blue minutes in his legs, not to be considered the eternal promise and at least to be a credible alternative to Retegui .

Mancio was not satisfied with the performance of Berardi (“who is not yet in charge”, words of the coach), on the right Gnonto and Politano will play on the right for Sunday (the former has an advantage), while that Pellegrini should be confirmed on the left (with Grifo, if necessary), also adept in the midfield role, possibly replacing the injured Barella (Mancio also often tried Gnonto on the left and Politano on the right, as in the second half against England “they went very well”, words of the coach). In the middle of the field, it depends on Cristante and Tonali, who the other night took charge of the boring Jorginho and Barella. The defense changes, especially in centrals: Mancini wants to continue with 4-3-3, Di Lorenzo confirmed on the right, Spinazzola on the left, Romagnoli in the middle, probably instead of Acerbi. Toloi in doubt, undermined by Scalvini or even Buongiorno, who finished in the stands in Naples along with Frattesi, Carnesecchi, Pafundi and Grifo.
