'Playing to win is our principle'. Turn over, there is Verratti (ANSA)



Absolute no to calculations and even less 'biscuits', yes to turnover. Roberto Mancini is approaching the last match of the Euro 2020 group stage with this mood. Wales arrives in Rome, with 400 fans with tickets in tow, but it is feared that many more will arrive (there are those who says five thousand) that, not having the coupon to watch the game live, will delight restaurateurs and pub managers. The army of Dragons always brings with it many supporters, as well as the red and white rugby team which is the most loved national team in Wales (and this year it won the 6 Nations), but Mancini's blues are certainly not like those of the ball oval, and football values, it is hoped, will remain the usual ones. It is also the hope of the coach, who certainly does not make calculations on what should be done,maybe lose and thus be overtaken by finishing second in the group and avoiding the part of the board where there is the risk of finding Belgium and France ("she remains the favorite despite the draw with Hungary - comments Mancini -. Then there will also be Belgium: in my opinion nothing changes "). But certain things are not part of the mentality of this coach thanks to whom Italy is unable to lose and has been defined as the most beautiful in the European Championship ("we are certainly good guys", Mancini jokes).But certain things are not part of the mentality of this coach thanks to whom Italy is unable to lose and has been defined as the most beautiful in the European Championship ("we are certainly good guys", Mancini jokes).But certain things are not part of the mentality of this coach thanks to whom Italy is unable to lose and has been defined as the most beautiful in the European Championship ("we are certainly good guys", Mancini jokes).

Becoming serious, Mancini explains that "usually we play to win, we go on the pitch for this, it is our principle and we will stick to this". But they still ask him if with Wales, which have 4 points so he is in good shape too, there is no risk of a 'biscuit', and the answer is not long in coming: "The biscuit? It is used when there are two teams who have a goal, the same result to move forward. But it is a problem that does not concern us - he underlines -: either London or Amsterdam, we will go where they tell us, and in the meantime and tomorrow we will play to win a difficult match since it is the third in ten days ". Precisely for this reason it is certain that the coach will make some changes, he says so himself and even makes a name.

"Marco (Verratti ed) needs to play. Until today, after so many days of training, he is fine - he says -. Let's see, if he will enter the field as he is likely to be, how he will be after the end of the first half, the his feelings. We will evaluate there. " "I really think there are 26 starters - continues Mancini, reinforcing the concept of turnover -. If you take the Nations League qualifiers, the attack was Insigne, Belotti and Bernardeschi who could play tomorrow. Then there is Chiesa who is a starter. . And in defense against Lewandowski and Milik, Emerson, Acerbi, Bastoni and Florenzi played. When I say that they are all owners it is because, if we change something, and tomorrow we have to do it, it's true. with a temperature of 32 degrees: we need fresh players ".
