Very sad how italian football has regressed. Outside of Chiellini, Verratti and Sirigu, there isn't much quality sadly.

Granted there are some good quality young players coming, but nothing spectacular really.
That 90's Italy team

While pretty much every other large nation is having an awesome generation, Italy's is very mediocre. Verratti looking like the lone bright spot for the future

This campaign Italy have been far from convincing, the way Croatia outplayed them in Milan in November was shocking. Today was actually one of their better matches (along with Norway back in September) just the result didn't go their way.

But as I mentioned earlier in the thread, they need to find a more reliable striker. Zaza and Pelle are not international quality while Immobile is a decent player but in awful form
Hands off of Dybala please!

Scotland taking the piss with the line-up against Gibraltar. Expect 1-0.

I'm going to close this thread now since the matches are starting, we can go on to the next one.
