But finally, in the Euro 2020, the Italians have burst out with fire in their belly as they look to another final day match up with whoever is victorious in the clash between England vs Denmark.
FamilyLifers look at the 5 best players in the Italian team leading up to the final on Sunday 11th of July, 2020
1. Goalkeeper: Gianluigi Donnarumma
After Gianluigi Buffon retirement from the National Team after 176 caps and a World cup medal to go with. There was always going discussions about who was going to replace the legendary shot-stopper between the sticks and there rose a man for the job, a man who was born ready since he put on the gloves.
As fate would have it, he (Donnarumma is a burgeoning shot-stopper ready to get a grip on the goalkeeping position for a similar period of time as Buffon. In truth, the Italians have a
‘keeper chiselled from the same dextrous mould as Buffon, and someone who, at just 22, is a world-class ‘keeper already
2. Defender: Bonnucci
The coach of the Italian has chosen to keep faith with his ‘old guard’ in defence even though he has brought in youngsters like Alessandro Bastoni, but he kept the spine of Italy from the 2010s.
Giorgio Chiellini, is still the captain of the side but he is plagued by age and slowness but he still reads the game well, but his partner in crime, Leonardo Bonucci is the most important defender for both Juventus and Italy as he is the most relied upon when it came to bringing the ball from the back to springing forwards passes and intercepting attacks from beyond. Bonnucci is an all-action defender.
3. Midfielder: Jorginho
Even while everyone is clamouring for Locatelli, it is the underrated Chelsea midfielder that gets all the attention in midfield, without the industrious Kante besides him, the Italian midfield maestro has done well for himself in midfield. He has brought some parts of his we never thought he has, from game-high interception numbers to threading passes and maintaining possession in midfield.
Jporginho is so good in the Eriuros that he is getting shouts for the Balon d’Or award this year, he is a man reborn.
4. Attacker: Insigne
It is always going to be a tough choice between Chiesa and Isigne but we choose to go for the latter as he has come alive for the Italian team just when it was the right time.
With a collection of wonderful goals to choose from, Insigne has truly lit up the occasion.
5. Coach: Mancini
The fact that the Italians are unbeaten for 32 matches shows how much work Mancini has put into this team, it been so impressive that he has recently signed a new three-year contract with the national team. Mancini says he hopes to “reap the rewards” of the work put in to develop this young generation of talents.
“I am really happy and I thank the President, it’s a great moment,” he said at a press conference.
“We have extended our deal. We will play in many competitions, it won’t be easy to win. We are trying to bring forward the project we have began three years ago.
“There are many young players and we hope we will soon reap the rewards of our work. We’ll need some luck in some moments, we will want to have our say at the Euros.”
