The champions of the future in Pesaro. The blue of the under 20 on Thursday 11 November will be on the turf of Tonino Benelli. The youngsters of the Italian national football team will play against the Czech Republic at 12.30. Not a friendly match but a real match of the ‘8 Nations Tournament’. Thus the Vis Pesaro house is preparing to host an important international event that will give visibility to the city but also to the entire regional FIGC. “This news can only make us happy both at a regional and local level. When a national team is hosted it is always a source of pride. We thank the FIGC for this choice”, said Ivo Panichi, president of the regional committee of the FIGC. So the azzurrini, coached by Alberto Bollini, return to play after some time in the home region of the technical commissioner of the senior national team, Roberto Mancini, born in Jesi. A double satisfaction for the territory. “The federation is working very well – continues the regional president Panichi – Paolo Nicolato’s under 21 team is also achieving good results, as well as the senior national team which made everyone happy with the victory of the European Championship”. The match, valid for the fourth day of the European youth event, will also be broadcast live on Rai Sport. In the group the azzurrini are at five points (one game less), still unbeaten after winning 2-0 against Poland and drawing 1-1 with England and Portugal. The president of the regional FIGC committee remembers with pleasure the precedent in which the under 19 played in Recanati. In 2015 there was a friendly against Serbia, when the national team won 4-1 in front of 2000 spectators at the Nicola Tubaldi stadium. “I was there, a good moment. The federation is doing very well with the national teams, even those of the youth sector and the lower categories. We hope this is the basis for continuing with the successes of the senior national team”, concludes Panichi. On that day in Recanati in Italy there were also three players who then became European champions in the last edition, namely Locatelli, Pessina and Barella. And curiosity of the case, among the replacements there was also a former Vis Pesaro, Lorenzo Carissoni, right back born in 1997 who wore the red and white shirt last season. This time, however, all the fans of the national team will be able to admire players of the caliber of Bove, 2002 in form at Roma and Viti of Empoli or the talented Marseille Tongya. But there will also be space for young players owned by Serie C teams, such as the goalkeepers Rinaldi of Aquila Montevarchi and Gelmi of Feralpisalò and the defender Ponsi of Modena. Who knows that some 2002 of Vis Pesaro may not be summoned, see Astrologer, Piccinini and Lombardi.
