Italy drew 1-1 with Macedonia in Euro 2024 qualifying. It was also Luciano Spalletti’s first match in charge of the Squadra Azzurra. At the end of the match, he talked about what went right and what went wrong.
“We could perhaps have done something more in terms of quality in midfield, we didn’t manage to reach the defensive line easily. It also depended on the pitch, which was dangerous today, and its quality. We had to be able to cover that space. When you’re up against it, it’s difficult to control the ball. It was a bad result for us, because the match could have been won. But it’s a good game to start working on,” Luciano Spalletti told Sky Sports after the match.
