Insigne played less than 500 mins in total for the NT. "ALWAYS"
Hating on a real GOAT like Sarri is pathetic.
Hating on a real GOAT like Sarri is pathetic.
It got him to a quarter when he was expected to be rekt by Belgium .
There is no team in Italy , no permutation or combination to have put up a bigger fight against Germans than what he did apart from veratti and marchisio. The fact that he took Germany this far, all of whose players are far superior, experienced and come from much better teams means this is the absolute best Italy had on offer.
Insigne is an inconsistent little mental midget. He has failed for Italy. ALWAYS. Elder was much better choice. Insigne is also overrated as fook on this forum along with most Napoli players and Sarri. He isn't special and be didn't fit the pressing game. He should be glad he was taken.
Because that's what they did every game? Pointless nitpicking. Yes the system had his flaws but this was an epic Italia side, the games against Belgium and especially Spain are big accomplishments and I feel by eliminating Spain and not Germany we could have decided the outcome of the tournament or at least had an important role in it. Eder and Giaccherini did their role well.
I didn't expect italy to get rekt by belgium.. Italy always does better as underdogs, that is a known fact.
For what it is he got the best out of those average players, which he chose in the first place. And in fact only conte could achieve that with exactly those type of players. But I BELIEVE that a better coach could have achieved the same result, had he started some of the benched players and some of those who didn't get picked.
About the match... imo he failed with the subs. He had game changers (i am aware that you don't agree) on the bench, he should have introduced them earlier.
My point is just like he was praised for those impressive wins, he should also somewhat be blamed for this loss.
So a winger with 12 goals and 10 assists is overrated. Hmm What did eder exactly do last year to deserve a starting spot
http://www.italianfootballdaily.com/open-letter-antonio-conte-2/Dear Mr. Antonio Conte,
As you awaken this morning, I can hardly imagine what you are feeling. I could not imagine you have awoken with a smile on your face, as anything less than total victory suffices in your eyes. But, perhaps you’ve achieved something far greater and far more meaningful in the grande scheme of things. You turned arguably the most pessimistic group of people in the world, the Italians, into a unified and believing fan base in such a manner that we may never again see.
I, myself, was a member of the doubters, at one point I had even said that you should resign. In retrospect, the underwhelming performances against teams like Malta, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria or England. Maybe it was the squad selection that left everybody from the peninsula scratching their heads. But in the end, after two years of work, the final product was there. You chose and crafted 23 men who would run through a brick wall or storm the gates of hell without question – and probably do it with a smile.
You personify grinta. I don’t believe there is a way you can translate that word into another language other than by showing somebody a 30 second video of you on the touchline. I could hardly imagine what it was like in training. You have your ways, and with three Scudetti, a Coppa Italia, and a heroic European Championship to show for it, very few now will be able to question it with merit.
Throughout this tournament, your men used key words in the interviews such as “unity, spirit, passion, brothers, faith,” the list goes on. We haven’t seen an Italy side this bonded together in a very long time. We witnessed the transformation of several players into gladiators. More so, astounding, is the fact that you did all of this in only a few weeks.
In the end, we conceded two goals in five matches and beat the champions of Europe and took the champions of the world deep into penalties. There’s no question, you turned water into fine wine and won the hearts of every Azzurri fan from across the globe. You did it all your way, through all the doubt, disgust and utter confusion of the media and fans alike. The best compliment I could give you is, you proved everybody wrong.
The future for the Nazionale is at a bit of a crossroads. Many new players are needed to bring back the quality needed to beat the best, and a new era is incoming for the Azzurri. The one thing I hope that is not lost or forgotten from this arduous march that you led for two years is the sacrifice and unity you bred into this side. Perhaps in two years time, with the same attitude and new players, we can say in the end, ‘you were victorious’.
We need another top quality winger. İnsigne on the left, D.Costa/Coman on the right, Robbery on the bench would be good.
İnsigne is better finisher than D.Costa.
For the second Euros in a row, Italia win the best meme contest
Considering bundesliga is Bayern's feeder league , the best winger u could think of was insigne?
Please. Draxler or Reus would be way better.
The point is moot, however. Carlo doesn't play with wingers and I doubt bayern will.
The day bayern start raiding players from Napoli is the day they have given up on ambition.
Proud of the team despite the loss. I just feel frustrated that we didn't have players - or even just a player - available who would have made a difference tonight - Verratti, Marchisio or even De Rossi. No shame in getting knocked out on penalties to a practically full strength Germany.
Who is that fairy and where can Milan sign him?
Lolno. He got knocked out by Germany. Not Wales. History aside, he was expected to get knocked out. He was expected to get knocked out vs Spain as well. You don't get blamed for losing to a superior team. He was never in a winning position either that some judgement in tactics cost him the game.
Because he isn't playing for Napoli to score 12 goals and 10 assists for starters.
But the main point is they didn't have to do anything last season. Deschamps said it best when dropping Nasri for the world cup , "a national team isn't made of the best 23 players but the most functioning 23 players".
Germany was going to have the bulk of the possession today. That meant Italy's pressing would have to be top notch in both attack and defense. No way was insigne going to play an up tempo pressing game.
He was brought on late because Germany were tired and hummels was on a yellow. That was the best time insigne could make a difference - running at tired German legs. Tired because they were kept on their toes by some good pressing from eder, giach and pelle.
