Italy vs Sweden by Obertino
Yes, the "Azzurra Squad" created a couple of good moments. Yes, the team of Ventura missed after the rebound, and Gianluigi Buffon did not really have a job. But still, with some kind of wrong attitude, for which they paid in the end. Now you can complain about hard football and tough actions of Swedes, but the result is on the scoreboard. Now Italy has a very difficult task in the return game, which will be held in Milan.
The head coach of the team Giampiero Ventura does not lose faith in his guys, but if suddenly happens that the the team flies past the 2018 World Cup it will be the last game for Ventura as head coach. Ventura believes in himself and his partners also Gianluigi Buffon, who really wants to play at the last in his career mundiale, and Lorenzo Insigne and does assert that World Cup without Italy of the world will be somehow inferior. But these are all brave words, and the Italians will have to work hard.
Yes, there are no Italian-style stars in the Swedish national team, but it's an organized, strong and very disciplined team that has its own views on the World Cup, and wants to get there no less than Italians.
In Solna, the Italians not only lost, but also lost one of their main players - the return match due to disqualification misses Marco Verrati. There are no more personnel losses in their squad. The nose of Bonucci is in order and he is ready for the upcoming match. Simone Dzadza recovered.
As for the Swedish team, it is expected to make one change in comparison with the first match. The main right-back Michael Lustig did not play in the first fight due to disqualification, but now he is again available for the team, and will replace Emil Kraft. Otherwise, Janne Andersson is unlikely to change anything in the original situation, and why should he?
It's hard not to agree with Buffon, Immobile and other Italian speakers - the World Cup without Italy will not be quite familiar. Before the "Skuadra Azzurra" only flew by the mundial once, and it was back in 1958, and the tournament, curiously, took place in Sweden.
The upcoming match, I think, will be very difficult - the Swedes will necessarily close and will defend their advantage, and it will be very hard for the hosts. Help in achieving a global goal can be a quick goal, or at least a goal in the first half. At this Ventura can emphasize the attention of their wards. Secondly, it's important to play safe on the defense, because if the Swedes manage to score a goal, it could be fatal for the Italians. Stadium "San Siro" will give the hosts the chance to fix the mistake of the first match, in my opinion Italy will be the team that will play the World Cup 2018.
