ROME – Roberto Mancini spoke and used the hard line to punish Nicolò Zaniolo and Moise Kean . The two young phenomena of Italian football have not been called by the National "A" for the next qualifying matches to the next European football championship but have been relegated to the Under 21 selection.
Zaniolo and Kean pay their unprofessional behavior during the last European championship under 21. The two players were also punished by Di Biagio because they arrived late for a technical meeting before a key match for the Italians.
Mancini was the first to believe in the talent of these two boys but, being a coach who does not tolerate unprofessional behavior, he could not do otherwise. For similar reasons, in the recent past he did not even call Mario Balotelli.
After this punishment, Zaniolo and Kean will most likely return to the Italian national football team permanently because, as mentioned above, Mancini made them debut in the selection "A" and believes very much in their talent.
The U.21 National Team, which will have Massimo Paganin as the new Head of Delegation, will meet in late evening next Sunday, September 1st at Fiumicino and the following morning will leave for Catania, for the scheduled game on the 6th. This is the list of the summoned players selected by the new coach of the Nicolato team:
Goalkeepers: Marco Carnesecchi (Trapani), Mattia Del Favero (Piacenza), Alessandro Plizzari (Livorno);
Defenders: Claud Adjapong (Verona), Alessandro Bastoni (Inter), Raoul Bellanova (Bordeaux), Davide Bettella (Pescara), Enrico Del Prato (Livorno), Matteo Gabbia (Milan), Riccardo Marchizza (Spezia), Luca Ranieri (Fiorentina) , Marco Sala (Virtus Entella), Alessandro Tripaldelli (Sassuolo);
Midfielders: Marco Carraro (Perugia), Davide Frattesi (Empoli), Manuel Locatelli (Sassuolo), Giulio Maggiore (Spezia), Sandro Tonali (Brescia), Niccolò Zanellato (Crotone), Nicolò Zaniolo (Rome);
Forwards: Moise Kean (Everton), Andrea Pinamonti (Genoa), Gianluca Scamacca (Ascoli), Riccardo Sottil (Fiorentina), Marco Tumminello (Pescara).
