ROME – "This Italy has recovered and now wants to win back its fans, we can succeed by following the path we have taken. I like the philosophy of Mancini, I think it can be the best for the future ". Marco Verratti plays the role awaiting Saturday's match in Milan against the Champions League champions for the Europa League. Winning the Azzurri could come to the Final Four after risking relegation until recently.
"In the first place in our group we really believe – said the PSG midfielder – It's a challenge as beautiful as difficult but as we said, we have already talked about it, we have to win Saturday without changing the way we play in the last "races. Against Ukraine and Poland, in October, Italy has convinced in terms of play and participation, and it is no coincidence that Mancini intends to confirm for Saturday the same men and the same form, the 4-3-3. The only novelty, due to the forfeit of Bernardeschi who had to leave today the meeting for a problem to the adductors, could be the use of Immobile in the trident with Chiesa and Insigne, with the various Berardi and Politano possible alternatives as emerged from the 'training this afternoon. No surprise in midfield where Verratti, Jorginho and Barella stand out, with Pellegrini on the launch pad.
"The important thing is to maintain our philosophy of play and our identity – said Verratti – Sorry for the injury because Federico is a great player, fundamental for the national team and Juventus. But here is a good group and who will come on the pitch will not regret the absent ".
So he highlighted the feeling with Jorginho: "I like to play together, always have the ball in my hand. I do not think it's a light midfield, for me it's the right way. A year ago we experienced one of the worst moments – he added, remembering the flop with Sweden costing Italy the qualification for the World Cup – I do not want to talk about Ventura, not all responsibilities are his but an idea and I keep it for myself . We plan to start again and make people come back to fall in love with the National team. This must be our first goal ". Besides of course the 3 points that never fail.
