Italia is also lacking availability of (deep) CB right now, in order to compete with 5-3-2 formation.

I don’t think Spalletti will be the answer. Italy don’t have the wingers for 4-3-3 especially if Chiesa can no longer be relied upon. Politano and Zaccagni aren’t scaring anyone even if I do like the latter and his club form. And the strikers? Yeesh. It’s a sad indictment of how empty the cupboard is when Immobile is starting qualifiers in 2023.

FIGC should have pleaded for Conte. It might not be pretty but he’d get them into the Euros.

Don't have one.

100%. If anyone could have squeezed something out of this talentless generation, it's him. A few great talents on a couple of positions and everywhere else decent squad players that in a right system could shine and be good enough. Perfect mix for conte.

You could bring in the best manager ever and they couldn't do anyhting with these players. The decline of talent has been on spotlight since the early 2010s and it's not gonna change anytime soon. It speaks volumes when Mancini tried to call up foreigners with Italian passports.

How does that look like in England and Spain?

These numbers are wrong. For instance, Milan are listed as 21/28, but they started 10 non Italians last match. Calabria is the only Italian in their starting XI.
21/28 means they have 21 non-Italians, no? So only 7 Italians, which looks to be: Sportiello, Mirante, Calabria, Florenzi, Caldara, Pobega, and some goalkeeper named Nava.

Yeah, I'm just an idiot. Carry on.

Fun fact: in the current squad, Italy has 5 Inter products vs Milan's 4 and Juve's 1

Lol Bonaventura starting, I guess Frattesi isn't fully fit yet

He’s been in excellent form for Viola I believe.

I’m more amused that Moise Kean is starting games. He’s done a grand total of… absolutely nothing for Juve this season. Shows how far the forward crop has fallen off.

And bam nice goal by Jack.

These fuckers better win against N.Macedonia and at least draw against Ukraine. It's pathetic that it has to come last game to qualify.
