A conformist Italy almost caught its fingers against Albania

Italy will soon pay for its concession against Albania in a rivalry where, despite being superior to its rival, it started in the worst way and almost drew in one of the last games (2-1).

The start is inappropriate for a current Euro Cup champion. Except for its premiere. Already out on the field, over 50,000 Albanians got past the famous ‘tifosi’ and were given reasons to cheer within seconds. Dimarco’s incomprehensible throw-in 21 seconds into the match was a gift for Bajrami, who sent more than half of Signal Iduna Park into a frenzy with the earliest goal in the history of the competition (1′).

Vertigo comes to Italy. Logically, he considered himself superior to Sylvinho’s team and found himself in a completely desperate situation. His reaction was to try to find the tie immediately. By pushing and moving the ball smoothly and quickly. There was also plenty of space, and Albania smelled blood and believed they could score a second advantage in these situations, with Spalletti’s men sometimes closing in on a single defender.

However, at some point common sense had to prevail and Barella arrived to provide it as usual, starting to set the tempo for the Italian team, who immediately leveled the scores with a header from Bastoni from a corner. which Pellegrini kicked ( eleven ‘) . Italy looked fine, as did Chiesa who never stopped making fools of himself on the wing and even Dimarco, who went deep on the left and took advantage of the fact that the Romanista assistant occupied the central areas.

It must be Barella, who until a few days ago seemed to have been ruled out for the start of this Euro Cup, who made logic prevail. More than that, with a first-time shot on a bouncing ball he hooked on his outside instep (16′). As only cracks do. Albania feared losing at half-time and the team, as a whole, stood on their own turf to close the ranks. Sylvinho was right in that decision, because even then Italy enjoyed up to three clear chances, especially one from Fratessi which they took between Strakosha, which was the capital, and the wood.

Italy froze the game until it was almost on ice. A classic transalpine football and worthy even if not very attractive. This is the best team in the world at making sure nothing happens on the pitch. Spalletti knew that Albania could only get back into contention through their own mistakes and decided to limit that possibility as much as possible. He even let Sylvinho’s men have the ball briefly, and his ethereal possession was nothing more than a respite for his rival.

He could have rushed in search of a calming goal and he probably found it. With nothing and less he almost made it a third on two occasions for Frattesi and Chiesa, but he didn’t need it. Spalletti’s message was clear when he decided to put Cambiaso and Cristante on the field of play at the expense of two attacking players And he almost paid for his acquiescence, as in the 90th minute Manaj had a brilliant shot that almost reached him three fucking. in Italy, who will have to think a little against Spain.
