Engines overheat. The European Championship in Germany is approaching, and yesterday Luciano Spalletti, while presenting the program “Vivo Azzurro TV”, showed that he has clear ideas about the call-ups that will be issued in light of the continental championship. “80% of the team has been completed,” declared the Technical Commissioner, who in recent days requested, and obtained, along with several of his colleagues, an expansion of the team to 26 members. There will be 15 reserves on the bench for each match, thus the possibility of changing the face of the team and also its tactical appearance quickly.

26 players have been called up in Italy, the possible list
Goalkeepers – Donnarumma, MP, Merritt.
Defenders – Di Lorenzo, Darmian, Mancini, Acerbi, Scalvini/Bongiorno, DeMarco, Bastoni, Cambiasso, Calafiore/Ruggeri/Biraghi.
Midfielders – Jorginho, Cristante, Barella, Locatelli, Fratese, Pellegrini, Bonaventura/Colbani.
attackers – Chiesa, Rettigui, Raspadori, Orsolini, Scamacca, Politano, Zaccagni.

Bonaventura-Colbani

Spalletti tested the three-man defense in the United States, suggesting he will travel to Germany with a group capable of interpreting both 4-3-3 and 3-5-2, but also 4-2-3-1. Or 3-4-3. This is why it will be important to have footballers who are able to play in multiple areas of the pitch and feel comfortable in different formations. Compared to the friendly matches in the United States, Francesco Acerbi will return: one of Giorgio Scalvini or Alessandro Bongiorno will make room for him.
The injured Destiny Udoji will be missing on the left: at this point the coach will have to decide whether to bring in Calafiore (more defensive), Ruggeri (more offensive) or Biraghi (the only one of the players) as a replacement for Demarco. The three who were already part of the Blue Light group with Spalletti).
In midfield, the decisions have been practically made, as Bonaventura and Colbani will compete for their final shirt. A more detailed discussion in attack given that yesterday, due to injury, coach Niccolò Zaniolo was lost: Chiesa, Raspadori, Zaccagni, Politano and Orsolini will join Scamacca and Retegui.
