The Under-20 National Team were involved in friendly action today as they prepare for the upcoming World Cup to begin in South Korea on 19th May. The Azzurrini faced off against Unicusano Fondi who were able to come back to win 2-1.
Evani’s side started strongly and showed the best of themselves in the first half and the usual Diamarco opened the scoring in the 20th minute with a free kick and Italy continued to play good football and there were a couple of chances to double the lead. The coach made a number of changes in the second half with an eye kept on the players’ condition after their engagements in recent days. Unicusano Fondi were able to finish in the ascendancy by leveling in the 75th minute through Squillace before Battistoni scored in the 87th minute.
The Under-20 National Team’s next outing will be for the training camp at Coverciano between 7th and 10th May where the Azzurrini will also face Venezuela in a friendly.
