Mancini influence begins to shine through for Azzurri

Italy recorded an impressive 1-0 victory away to Poland in the Nations League League A match, to give the Azzurri a three point lead over the relegation spot in third.
While it might have taken a last gasp set-piece goal from Cristiano Biraghi, the result of this match did not tell the full story. Instead the story of this game was that Italy under Roberto Mancini are beginning to perform like an Italy side should, and fans will use the best internet casino to begin backing their team off the pitch too.
With years of underwhelming performances for the Azzurri, and little domestic enthusiasm for the current crop of players, the fact that there now seems to be an identity, a style of play that excites and produces results, is great news for Italian football fans.
The attacking trident of Lorenzo Insigne, Federico Bernardeschi and Federico Chiesa will be one that could go on to strike fear into international defences for years to come. They have found a way to play together, often involving switching play with deep passes in the final third, which stretches defences, creating space in the centre for the central attacker, and any midfielders arriving.
Elsewhere, Jorginho impressed again, dictating play from the centre, creating the time required in midfield for those around him to move into dangerous positions. Meanwhile Florenzi and Biraghi tried to advance up the wing positions from defence at every opportunity to add numbers to midfield and attack. It’s a fluid, modern style of football.
And although it’s too early to get too excited, a good performance against Ukraine and an excellent game away to Poland is more than Azzurri fans have had to cheer for years, probably since Euro 2012. The investment in Mancini might be just beginning to produce its fruit. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
