Due to Coronavirus, the 2020 European Football Championship will be held in the summer of 2021. According to the head coach of the Italian national team, Roberto Mancini, it will only benefit his team.
The 55-year-old coach talked about interesting topics.
Euro 2020 with a one-year delay
“UEFA made the right decision, but there was probably no other choice. From a sports point of view, this decision will only benefit the Italian team. We have laid the foundation for the new team with many young and promising players.”
“Naturally, we are still behind the teams like France, Germany, and Spain. Therefore, another year is an additional chance for us to increase, prepare well, and compete with the strongest teams in Europe.”
“As I mentioned, we have a lot of young players on the team who need to increase their play level. Hopefully, some of them will take this chance. “
A lot of time has been given to Nicolo Zaniolo. He needs to recover and get back in optimal shape. I am interested in seeing him on the front lines of the attack. This chance was never given to him in Rome. Sebastiano Esposito is exceptionally talented as well, and this one year is an additional chance for him.
“Human health is the most important thing, but in my opinion, in the summer we will have the opportunity to finish the championship. The matches may take place against the empty stands, for which Lega Calcio must prepare.”
“Who will be the main contender for the championship? Lazio have 4-5 top-class players, and a lot will depend on how well these players return to form. Juve have more resources and probably stay the main favorites.”
