Trainer: Roberto Mancini
Regarded as one of the best players of his generation, even though he could not win a title with Azzurri. Mancini took his place as national coach after collecting trophies at club level in Italy, England and Turkey.
Key Player: Jorginho
In the Italian camp he is called Radio Jorginho because he talks to and directs his teammates all the time during the game. You should look for another player if you expect great moves or goals, but Jorginho is the brainchild of Azuri and is the essential conductor of this orchestra.
Groits’ Talent: Nicoli Barella
The midfielder is important in Mancini’s system. Born in Sardinia, the 24-year-old plays a key role at Inter in Serie A and really brings everything with him – tackles, technique, energy and dangerous, well-timed runs in the opposing penalty area.
