After a dismal few months abruptly ended an incredibly successful cycle, Italy kick off their latest UEFA Nations League campaign against old rivals Germany on Saturday evening, in Bologna. The European champions missed out on qualification for Qatar 2022 due to a humbling playoff defeat and were heavily beaten in midweek, while their neighbours cruised into this winter’s World Cup, where they will seek a fifth global crown. An era ended in Palermo, just over two months ago, as Italy’s Euro 2020 winners repeated the same mistakes as their predecessors back in 2017, when the Azzurri failed to qualify for the World Cup in Russia.
Amid recrimination and calls, from some quarters, for the axe to fall on coach Roberto Mancini – previously lauded for leading his nation to an improbably long unbeaten run and winning the Euros – a painful 1-0 defeat to North Macedonia ended hopes of making the upcoming finals in the playoffs’ semi-final stage. After a relatively meaningless friendly win over Turkey just a few days after, Italy’s most recent get-together commenced in embarrassing fashion, as the ‘Finalissima’ clash with Argentina – bringing together the reigning champions of Europe and South America – saw them suffer a 3-0 loss at Wembley.
A symbolic changing of the guard took place at the scene of the Azzurri’s continental triumph less than 12 months previously, as captain Giorgio Chiellini bade farewell to La Nazionale – making his 117th and final appearance in the iconic light-blue jersey. Mancini has already declared that a rejuvenation of the squad is about to unfold, as he builds once again, having succeeded in piecing together a team that not only lifted the trophy in England last summer, but also finished first in their 2020–21 Nations League group ahead of the Netherlands and Poland. Though Italy therefore qualified for the tournament’s finals, they were beaten in the semis by Euro 2020 victims Spain last October, and ultimately claimed the minor consolation of third place by beating Belgium.
Their new Nations League campaign now starts at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, as Mancini’s transitional squad tackle League A Group 3, which also features England and Hungary. With a flurry of fixtures to come in the following fortnight – a total of four in 10 days – Italy will have to quickly forget their Finalissima fiasco and hit the ground running against the most formidable of opening opponents. No strangers to being overturned by the Macedonians – who they strode past during qualifying to secure a spot in Qatar, despite losing 2-1 to them at home – Germany arrive in Emilia-Romagna full of optimism under the fresh management of coach Hansi Flick.
Dortmund-bound defender Nico Schlotterbeck – who recently suffered DFB Pokal final defeat in his last game for Freiburg – and Bayern Munich midfielder Jamal Musiala are likely to start, while Karim Adeyemi will aim to unseat Timo Werner up front. Experienced campaigners Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Julian Draxler are both not involved, but evergreen forward Thomas Muller should start in partnership with Bayern clubmates Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane in attack. Chelsea’s Kai Havertz is also available to feature at some stage.
