Mancini forgets the Orange in Nations League group: ‘Competing with Poland for the lead’


Italy coach Roberto Mancini has honestly admitted that he was surprised by the tactical change of the Orange before Wednesday night’s game. The Netherlands played in a 5-3-2 formation against La Squadra Azzurra.

“I think it was the first time that the Netherlands switched to this system, we were surprised by that”, Mancini is quoted by The Gazzetta dello Sport. “We knew it was going to be a tough game.”

Mancini did not think his team put bad football on the mat on Wednesday evening. It had mainly to do with the Netherlands that the Italian game was not fully realized. “There are opponents who cause problems. That happened tonight. We attacked and I think we created the most great opportunities. It was a good game, a fight.”

Due to the draw at Italy – Netherlands, Poland takes over the lead in Group 1. However, both Italy and the Netherlands will still take action against the country, Italy on November 15 as first. “We are going to compete with Poland for the lead”, Mancini seems to have forgotten the Dutch national team for a while. “We’re going to win the next two games and that way qualify for the next round.”
