The former coach of the Italian national team, with whom he became World Champion in 2006, Marcello Lippi spoke on the pages of the Gazzetta dello Sport. Here are his words.
STRETCHER – «After two seasons at Inter and in the Champions League it will be the surprise of the tournament. His time has come, I like how he plays, how he fights and how he runs. Our star is he “
EXCESSIVE EXALTATION – «These guys know how to win. They are aware of their strength, it is not presumption but self-esteem. Now we are there and we are ready “
PHENOMENA – «It is inevitable to say Mbappe, in the front row after Messi and Ronaldo and is always decisive. I also like Foden, Sterling, Mount and Havertz “
RONALDO – «He stays young and is also aiming for the next World Cup. As in Juve, he doesn’t create on his own, but he is relentless when there is a conclusion, always in the right place at the right time “
DEFENCE – «Italy is in very good shape. We have a great goalkeeper, Donnarumma, and it would be nice if he immediately found a team to think only of the European Championship. Chiellini is a phenomenon, without some injuries he would have had a longer career but who knows, maybe we’ll see him at the World Cup too “
