Spalletti reveals how Italy should play against Spain

Luciano Spalletti, coach of Italy, this Saturday’s narrow victory over the Albania (2-1). “Since I started training, they have told me that the important thing is to win. No, the important thing is to play well. To aim to win the European Championship we have to play football well. We were deep in the first half, and it allowed Albania to use their physicality and create some chances for us. We have to continue trusting in our style, that is the way to follow,” he noted.

Spalletti also spoke about the Spanish team, his next rival in the Euro (Tuesday, June 20, at 9:00 pm, in Gelsenkirchen). “Spain will probably play a different game than Albania, and put more pressure on us. We need to move the ball faster than we did tonight. Against Spain, we need to advance the ball more, and look to play balls in behind the defence.”

The Italian coach emphasized the role of Nicolò Barella, the moment of the last 2-1 against Albania. “When he drops deep and keeps the rhythm in front of the defense, that’s when he’s at his best. That’s when he takes control and unclogs the game. Sometimes he spends energy running on the wings, but tonight he did exactly what we wanted to do . “It’s been wonderful,” outstanding.

About the center forward match Gianluca ScamaccaSpalletti commented that “he played well. We worked hard, we held the ball and we made good passes in small spaces. He is a big player, a finisher, but he can also combine. “He had two or three good chances, but he was unlucky because the Albanian goalkeeper saved very well.”
