    Paul Pogba Juventus

    Paul Pogba transferred to Manchester United in the summer of 2009, but the young Frenchman quickly became forgotten about at the club. In the summer of 2012 when his contract was coming to an end he decided it was the right decision for him to move to the Italian giants Juventus after racking up only 7 senior appearances for the Premier League club. But was this the right decision for his career?

    With a goal and two assists against Genoa on Sunday night, Francesco Totti became the joint second top goalscorer in the history of Serie A – sitting in second place with Swedish legend Gunnar Nordahl on 225 goals.  The Roma captain is the only player of the modern era to be among the top five of this elite group.  In first place lies Silvio Piola with what looks like an unmatchable 274 goals.

    Roma Celebrating

    On Sunday night we witnessed the awakening of something spectacular. Roma travelled to the San Siro to face Inter Milan. And, in one of the most electrifying performances you will see all season, Roma routed Inter Milan in a 1-3 away victory.  The performance was characteristic of all that is loved about Zdenek Zeman – pace, incision and directness.

    The Italian football season began with the Super Cup between defending league champions Juventus and Cup winners Napoli. The game was played at the Bird’s Nest stadium in Beijing and featured the use of extra officials.

    Juventus took home the trophy with a 4-2 win after extra time. The game had finished 2-2 after 90 minutes with Pandev and Zuniga getting sent off for Napoli (the former getting a straight red) in the final 10 minutes while Dossena was also given a ban after making a “threatening expression” to the assistant after the game finished.

    Possible Lineups:

    Italy:

    G: Buffon

    D: Bonucci, De Rossi, Chiellini

    MF: Maggio, Nocerino, Pirlo, Marchisio, Balzaretti

    F: Cassano, Balotelli

    Croatia:

    G: Pletikosa

    D: Strinic, Corluka, Schildenfeld, Simunic

    MF: Rakitic, Vukojevic, Modric, Perisic, Mandzukic

    F: Jelavic

    Tactical analysis.

    For Italy, their job will be to focus on dictating play rather than containing it, contrary to what they did against Spain. As such, holding midfielder Thiago Motta may be dropped in favour of the attacking bursts of Antonio Nocerino, while question marks exist for whether Mario Balotelli will be retained in the starting line up, given competition from Antonio Di Natale and Sebastian Giovinco.

    For the first time since 2006, the Italian national team can stake a major claim of having a reasonable chance of winning the European finals. Coach Cesare Prandelli has worked wonders with the Azzuri, incorporating a meritocratic squad selection process as well as balancing out experience and vitality by mixing the old with the young.

    In such a way, the wisdom of Gigi Buffon, Andrea Pirlo and Andrea Barzagli are ably complemented by the energy of international upstarts Claudio Marchisio, Sebastian Giovinco and Angelo Ogbonna. With Italy breezing through the qualification process, the nation eagerly looked forward to see what Prandelli had in store for them as he announced his 32-man preliminary squad.
