FERRARA – Italy Under 21 beat Iceland 3-0 (1-0) in a match valid for qualifying at the European Championship, held in Ferrara. In goals Sottil in the first half and two goals by Cutrone in the second half. It is Italy's third victory in four matches in Group A, where the team led by Paolo Nicolato, still unbeaten, occupies second place behind Ireland, which has three points and two more games played.
It was Cutrone's evening. After a sensational goal wrong at the start of the race, the former Milan striker took the scene with a double by applause. The first goal was as a striker from the penalty area, while in the second it showed excellent technical skills as he bagged the edge of the post.
For Cutrone, this double is a nice confidence boost as his first season in England did not start very well. With the Wolves, Cutrone played 19 games with just two goals. A very low goal average compared to the one he had at the time of Milan. Obviously, the Italian air is good for him …
The excellent period of Italian football is confirmed. The National A qualified to Euro 2020 with two advance rounds and also the Under 21 has excellent chances to triumph in its qualifying group. Finally Italian football returns to churn out top level young players (source: Ansa).
