After two matches at Euro 2024, the Squadra Azzurra find themselves with one win and one defeat. This Monday, Italy will cross swords with Croatia in a decisive duel in which defeat could jeopardize their chances of progressing to the next phase. Gianluca Scamacca, the team’s center-forward, has received some advice from former Juventus player Cesare Prandelli.

Prandelli shared his advice in an analysis published today in La Gazzetta dello Sport. He emphasized the importance of Scamacca playing a central role as a number 9, stressing the need to hold onto the ball, facilitate the team’s build-up and actively seek immediate support. “Scamacca is the centre-forward of this team and can’t afford to always dribble alone,” said Prandelli, highlighting the need for a more collective approach and more pragmatic management of opportunities in front of the opposition goal. This advice is aimed at optimizing Italy’s attacking efficiency, crucial in their quest for success at Euro 2024.
