Italy is back!
The Azzurra team returns to a Nations League Final Four after eliminating Hungary in the decisive group match. A very good version of Mancini’s men, who had absolute control of the game at all times, with a Donnarumma who was the local Italian hero.
First part with a lot of action, especially in the Hungarian area. Italy has dedicated itself to constantly attacking Gulasci’s goal, who has had some problems in the match. First when he almost put the ball in his goal and second in the goal. Raspadori took advantage of the Hungarian defense’s ball-out error and Gulasci’s error to put his team ahead. Szoboszlai had the draw, but the Italian defense cleared any hint of danger.
The second part had a more alternate domain. Italy went for the second goal and found it with a great play between Barella and Di Lorenzo who put a great ball to the far post for Dimarco who pushed it inside and left the Puskas Arena frozen. At that time, Hungary needed two and dominance of the game turned in favor of the Magyars, but without generating too much danger. It is true that Donnarumma ended up being one of the heroes of the match, especially for a triple save he made to the Hungarian forwards.
Italy came back and, after being eliminated for the World Cup in Qatar, returned to a final phase. The European champion will face the Netherlands and Croatia, in the absence of deciding whether Spain or Portugal occupy that last place.
