DONNARUMMA 6.5
A great save on Embolo, he doesn’t repeat himself on the goal, on Rieder’s free kick he saves with the help of the post. But overall he is by far the best of this European Championship.

BY LORENZO 4
And this time we can’t even say that next time it will go better. Vargas suffers, he is often late and never finds an understanding with Mancini. A disaster.

LEFT-HANDED 4.5
He leaves a huge hole in which Embolo slips, San Gigio saves him. He is not convincing, he is suffering between tunnels suffered and wrong movements.

STICKS 5
He tries to lead the department, all in all the center-left chain works better, he cleans the area on a couple of occasions, but on Freuler’s goal he is out of position.

DARMIAN 4-
He tries to keep Ndoye at bay, he doesn’t always succeed, he clears the area a couple of times, but he makes mistakes on simple balls coming out. But above all, in 90′ we don’t remember a single forward pass.

CHRISTIAN 5
It doesn’t make an impact, it doesn’t guarantee the solidity that is expected and it is missing during the construction phase. It makes us miss those who were there before.

BEANS 5.5
In the first half the only positive plays were his between a pirouette and a couple of interesting passes.

STRETCHER 4.5
The biggest disappointment, because he is the strongest Azzurri player. Hit hard after 8 minutes by Freuler, he suffers the rush of his Swiss colleagues, at the 35th he is cautioned and the card affects him even more than the blow. He doesn’t get anything right.

NETWORK 5.5
He tries, but he doesn’t succeed, also because he sees few balls).

CHURCH 5.5
Two ideas in the general nothingness, a recovery in the second half. That’s all, it can’t be enough but it’s among the least bad. At least he gets angry.

SCAMMA 4
Never served well, it’s true. But the responsibilities are also his. He doesn’t go looking for it, he doesn’t create spaces, he hits the post from 4 meters. Failed.

EL SHAARAWY 5
More or less like Chiesa, but he misses two possible, if not conclusions, cross-shots. At half-time he leaves his place to Zaccagni.

ZACCAGNI 5.5
He tries to do something, he points at the man and puts it in the middle and if there is a need to go back he answers present.

SHOULDER 4
The fourth Italy of Euro2024 is the ugliest. Even worse than the one dominated by Spain because the difference in values ​​between the two opponents must be considered. Easy to say afterwards, but they don’t guess the formation, they don’t find the solutions to fix it.
