Former Italy striker Jose Altafini believes that Gianluca Scamacca has been excessively criticized, so Luciano Spalletti should start the Atalanta star in place of Mateo Retegui against Croatia tonight.

“I like Scamacca, especially technically. He gets criticized too much, like Romelu Lukaku. They’re strikers who hold the ball up front, but if the team doesn’t dominate in midfield and create chances, the central striker is affected. Retegui is good, but not first-class. His strength is that he makes the most of almost every chance he gets. He’s an excellent finisher. He’ll have less pressure, so maybe less fear. Retegui defends a lot and that can be important for this team, but a central striker can’t spend 90 minutes chasing down opponents,” Altafini told La Gazzetta.
