TORINO – Italy, after the defeat against Spain in the Nations League semifinal, returns to the field at the Allianz Stadium in Turin against Belgium in the final valid for the third and fourth place. Martinez could take revenge after the defeat in the quarter-finals of the European Championships but the coach of the Red Devils will have to do without Eden Hazard and Lukaku: “They’ve had muscle overload and we don’t have the facilities here to do the usual medical work“, the explanation of the former Everton coach. The 2-1 against Spain interrupted a three-year streak of positive results for Italy. Mancini’s eleven, therefore, will have to get up immediately also because the national team has not recorded two consecutive knockouts since the 2014 World Cup (Costa Rica and Uruguay). Italy also aims to keep fifth place in the Fifa ranking. from top seed.
