Finally had some time to see the match, Paratici and Claudio Chiellini were in the stands to see the game. I like that. Apparently Paratici visits a lot of U19/U23 games, I didn’t know that.
We eliminated 6 teams before winning the final, but the last official U23 game was 4 months ago.
I general a difficult match, a lot of small mistakes and we were bad in attacking. Defensively very good. We started defending from the 60th minute to grind out the win. Before we were superior in our passing games, but as said, you could see that they didn’t play for a while.
Had a good match. Technically he remains one of our most talented players, had almost a assist with his left foot, gave a great cross. It says a lot that he’s been going back and forward to U19 and U23 to play the most important matches in both teams.
