With Belotti and Immobile knocked out, in the Azzurri home there is a puzzle about the center-forward to be deployed against Spain: Insigne could act as a ‘false nueve’.
Belotti in the pits, Immobile as well: who will be the center forward of the Italy against the Spain? A question that also hovers in the head of Roberto Mancini, who in that role would be concretely thinking of betting on Lorenzo Insigne.
The captain of Napoli, according to the latest provided by ‘Sky’ on the formation on the eve of the Nations League semifinal scheduled for Wednesday evening at San Siro, would be in pole position to occupy the tile of ‘false nine’ in the blue trident.
The centralization of Insigne would open the doors of ownership to another Lorenzo, Pellegrini, in a state of grace after goal and renewal with Roma: the Giallorossi would start from the left just like Spalletti’s 24 usually does, with Chiesa attacking right.
Chosen by Goal
The alternatives available to Mancini are called Moise kean e Giacomo Raspadori, more central strikers than Insigne but who appear further back in the hierarchies of the coach than Pellegrini: in case of overtaking the Neapolitan would remain on the left-handed offensive out, with Pellegrini on the bench and the inclusion of the Juventus player or the jewel owned by Sassuolo in the center of the trident.
Last option, as recalled by Mancio in conference, matches the name of Federico Bernardeschi: the bianconero also played as a false center forward and, for the match against Spain, it could be useful.
