Italian compliments for the Orange: ‘Frenkie de Jong played great’

Despite the loss of points against the Dutch national team and the loss of the lead in the group to Poland, the Italian team has every confidence in reaching the final stage of the Nations League.

“That’s no problem”, said Roberto Mancini after the draw against the Netherlands (1-1) in Bergamo. “We will win the last two games and qualify for the final tournament.”

The Italian national coach could not deny that he was surprised by the fact that the Orange team took up a 5-3-2 formation. “The Netherlands stands for attacking and dominant football, not for playing football with five defenders. I did not expect my colleague Frank de Boer to start like this.”

‘Orange feared our style’

Leonardo Bonucci and Alessandro Florenzi, who arrived twenty minutes before time on Wednesday evening, see the adjustment of the Dutch system mainly as a compliment for Italy.

“We forced the Netherlands to completely change their tactics. For the first time in a long time they played with five in the back. That means they feared our football style and we should be proud of that”, said Florenzi.

Bonucci saw that the Italians had a hard time with the tactics of Orange. “It was more difficult for us to get the ball around in midfield, but nevertheless we created a lot of opportunities.”
