Under-17 National Team: Azzurrini lose out to Israel in their final Four Na

The Under-17 National Team suffered a 2-0 defeat at the Wacker Arena in their final Four Nations match against Israel on Tuesday. Carmine Nunziata’s Azzurrini were unable to impose themselves on the opposition, who had the superior tactical and technical ability on the day. 

Italy’s latest German expedition therefore ends with one win against the hosts and two defeats to the Netherlands and Israel. However, this trip will have provided coach Nunziata with useful indications ahead of their upcoming involvement in the first phase of qualifying for the European championship, which will take place in October in Georgia.
