«For the last match on Wednesday we will see some changes. The unbeaten record? Congratulations to the boys ». Chiellini: “We remain those of Wembley”
A blatant gesture of anger at the end of the first half, after the free kick kicked by Insigne on Sommer’s fists. A quick summons to Immobile on the sidelines to give him a summary of all the shouts dispensed. Another attack of nerves, sunk on the bench because Zaniolo loses the right moment.
Italy rediscovers how hard the road to world qualifications is, how strong the Swiss goalkeeper Sommer is and also how tough Mancio can be: the coach of serenity and “fun first of all”, he frothes anger, but minimizes to the microphones: “Angry? It happens. It is a moment that the ball does not enter. We have missed too many occasions: we have to be more bad, more precise, a game that has been defeated you can’t help but win 2-3 to zero. We had chances, the team played. Now the match with Switzerland in Rome in November becomes decisive. For the last match on Wednesday we will see some changes, because the players are tired. The missed opportunity burns, like last Thursday, the same ».
The only joy the record of 36 unbeaten games. “I congratulate the boys, I hope they will last for the next 100 years”, Mancini points out. Pietro Vierchowod, Mancini’s former companion and Sunday commentator on Swiss TV, knows his chickens and explains concisely: “Mancio is very pissed off”. George Chiellini takes it with philosophy: «We missed that little bit more for the goal and he needs to be pulled out asap, this team will find him. I liked Italy, the one we left at Wembley is back, we will go there to take the qualification ».
