#ITAESP - Tactical Thread

Key points:

- How Spain stopped Italy's build up play
- Italy forced to rely on transitions for attacks
- Olmo the False 9
- Morata's redemption arc is over

Italy were able to grab an equalizer via a more direct route to goal.

In stark contrast to their style all tournament, #ITA were forced to sit back and defend, relying on counter-attacks for chances.

Insigne and Chiesa would target the space behind #ESP fullbacks.
The reason #ITA could not playout from the back was due to the aggressive press from #ESP .

The 3 forwards would press the 2 central defenders and Jorginho, while the ball sided CM (Pedri or Koke) would join the press.

This forced Italy to play direct during the build up phase.

Now that most of the teams will look more or less the same I think at this point CAPTAINCY🧢 pick is the most crucial decision.

Here are some captaincy options that can boost your ranking.

🟦Lorenzo Insigne🇮🇹:
• 2 goals⚽
• 3.5 shots per game
• 1.5 shots on target
• 2.8 key passes per game

Also, he scored a wonder goal against Belgium and this kind of goal can really help with the confidence. And at this stage that can change games!...
🟦Ciro Immobile 🇮🇹:
• 2 goals⚽️
• 1 assist🅰️
• 4.0 shots per game

Let's be honest this lad had a very poor game against Belgium. 0.8 shots on target per game from 4.0 shots per game is a little concerning I think though...
