The seventh consecutive victory, twenty-sixth consecutive profit, serves a Roberto Mancini to resolve the last doubts before the definitive summons for the European Championship. In the round 7-0 against the tender San Marino, last in the Fifa rankings, shines Federico’s tarnished star Bernardeschi. The Juventus player has experienced one troubled season with Pirlo, playing little and little evil. Mancini, however, esteems him and has the power to always regenerate it. It happens again this time, a two days from the compilation of the final list.
For the former viola, the challenge with San Marino is a definitive exam that he passes with flying colors and not only for the goal that unlocks the result, but for the commitment both from outside and from a false nine. IS just as a fake striker he scores with a sharp left taking advantage of Castrovilli’s assist, another who is appreciated even if he is behind in Mancini’s hierarchy. «Bernardeschi has always done well with us. For the European it is a certainty ». Politano, author of a brace in the second half, tries to put the coach in difficulty. It grows over distance Pessina, also the author of two goals e Cristante is doing pretty well.
“I have a couple of choices to make that don’t make me sleep”, says Mancini.
Who knows if he will have second thoughts about it Moses Kean. He had assured us the place, but in the Sardinian friendly he wastes the opportunity to get closer to Immobile and Belotti. Indolent, always on the sidelines of the game, Moise starts as a center forward and then is diverted to the right wing, but never lights up, slips twice, lives on the sidelines of the game, the shadow of the champion who made himself appreciated with Paris Saint Germain. Mancini takes it off after just a while of nothing. Will it be a clue?
The Italy of the reservists wins without suffering spreading in the recovery. None of the starters against San Marino will be on the pitch against Turkey on 11 June. After Bernardeschi’s goal, comes the doubling of the rookie Ferrari who had played and scored in the experimental at the time of Ventura.
The other goals in the second half. The braces from Politano and Pessina and the goal from Belotti (best scorer of the Mancini era with 8 goals) fix the result. For Italy the result counts zero. The first test is a kick, little more than a workout. It only counts for Mancini. Now is the time for definitive choices.
