Italy plays against England and Malta as part of the Euro 2024 qualifiers. For these games, Roberto Mancini has called the young striker of Leeds United Wilfried Gnonto. The latter recalls the fear he has for the coach when he was in the youth team of Inter and the coach was at that time in Lombardy. He also reveals his cheek for his call-up.

“Does it still scare me? The truth? I have the same feeling. I remember when I was a child at Inter and he was coaching the first team: he was an idol and I didn’t expect to be in the national team with him. He gave a strong signal, both with me and with other young people. I hope that many others will follow his example,” he told Il Corriere della Sera.
