Cesare Prendelli, Italy’s former national coach, recently justified Luciano Spalletti’s decision not to call up Ciro Immobile. He recalled that it was certainly in the interests of rejuvenating the team. He also spoke of the must-win game of the international break.
“The most important match is the one against North Macedonia. The players have to think about winning that game, and not make any calculations. It’s not like a coach to wait until the last two days to call on a player. We have a staff who follow the growth of our players very closely. The impact is strong, but that’s the way it is, we need to get younger. Immobile hasn’t been called up, but Scamacca and Raspadori have. You can’t argue with the coach’s choices,” Cesare Prandelli told ANSA.
