Ex-mentor of a number of Italian clubs and the Italian national team Arrigo Sacchiwho is among the top 10 best coaches in world football, shared his expectations from the upcoming Euro 2024 qualifying match, in which the fate of a ticket to the final tournament will be decided.
“Tough challenge,” Sacchi noted in a comment to Tuttomercatoweb. – It hides many pitfalls. Firstly, the Ukrainian national team did not play, so they rested longer than us. Secondly, tension is an additional enemy for the Azzurri. We must try to isolate the situation, make sure that the Spalletti boys do not feel pressure.
Plus, there is no point in emphasizing that we will be satisfied with a draw. If they think they are playing for a draw, that is when they lose… This is a team that must follow the instructions of a coach who likes to attack the opponent. Let them do this against Ukraine, and not sit and calculate the chances, like in accounting. The main thing is to enter the field with clear ideas and the desire to implement them“
Let us remind you that the match between Ukraine and Italy will take place on November 20 in Leverkusen, Germany.
