Immobile, now or never: in the Nations League to shine in blue
Written by aquitodovale

The center forward of the Italian national team Ciro Immobile spoke at a press conference, from the retirement of the national team, where theItaly is preparing the last two games of the group of Nations League versus England And Hungary.

Immobile has always struggled to maintain his average achievements with the blue shirt on, and during the interview he himself tries to explain why.

Immobile: “Fewer goals for the national team? Maybe I tend to overdo it “

At the moment Property he is the only striker who can guarantee a good presence in front as a starting forward. A nice problem, given that the striker of the Lazio never plays so well, and it is the same player who tries to explain the reason:

“I wonder almost every day. Maybe because I can make less mistakes and I try to overdo it. Rosico a lot, I conquered 4 Serie A scorers and with Italy I did a little less. Criticisms? They hurt me if I feel that I am the striker of the lack of qualification for the World Cup but not the one of the conquest of the European Championship ”.

Property then he also reiterates that he had the desire to abandon the blue colors after the disappointment World and the many criticisms received:

“I thought a lot about leaving the national team following the lack of qualification and the many criticisms. Slowly, returning to play with Lazio, I realized that I still had something to give to the national team. With different thoughts, since I know that the World Cup will be in many years, the age does not go back, even if I am as good as today I can still give a lot. The coach never had the doubt that I would leave, my family and I talked about it a lot and I decided to continue. Criticism on social media is part of this environment, however, it is necessary to have balance in judgments and then make decisions. This is why I had thought of leaving the national team but then, looking back on my entire football career, it did not seem right for others to decide for me ”.

Finally a comment onEngland, next opponent in Nations League tomorrow:

“With the national team in Milan there is not a good memory. It will be a difficult match on Friday, England has physical, technical skills and they have to prepare for the World Cup, this is one of the few races they have been doing in the meantime. We are aware that we have to give something to our people, they are really disappointed by the lack of qualification, we have to go back to playing and having fun. The National team in difficult moments – explains Immobile – also on the basis of what happened in previous years, it was a point of union for everyone: at the European Championship Italy joined for us, we must start from that, the Italians must have that memory and trust us to experience other moments like this “.

In terms of numbers, the only great Italian striker is available

Even the same Roberto Mancini reiterated, at a press conference, the shortage that theItaly is suffering at the level of attackers. Our movement is no longer able to produce those great bombers, and those half points of talent that have made us great in the world for most of our history.

At the moment Property, at the level of numbers, or rather of networks created, it is the only one that could be defined as “great”. In A league is already one of the best goalscorers of all time with 187 goals in total, minus one, for example, from a sacred monster like Alessandro Del Pierobut also less than one from Gilardino And Gentlemen. At 205 there is Roberto Baggioat 250 Totti and 290 the unattainable Silvio Piola.

Speaking of national team instead, Property however, he is the best scorer in business with 15 goals scored since his debut. The closest in the rankings are Vieri And Graziani with 23 goals each, the all-time striker is Rhombus of Thunder Gigi Riva with 35 goals.

The situation in the Nations League of Italy

At the moment the blues of Mancini are third in Group 3 of League A of Nations League with 5 points, behind the Germany with 6 and all‘Hungary with 7. TheEngland sadly stops at two.

In theory, therefore, the Azzurri could both finish first and finish last. A lot will depend on the match against England, before facing leaders Hungary. A win will be crucial if only to stay in League Abut even two victories may not be enough, if the Germans also win both.

Furthermore, in the event of an equal finish between us and the Germanywould be the Teutonics to access the Final Four since they have the advantage in head-to-head matches.
