Italy had a very big achievement earlier, however, now this team should start playing better and stronger. As we can see, they struggling to reach high places or fighting for trophies. They failed to qualify to the World Cup in Russia by losing against Sweden in PlayOffs. During the last few years, they changed already 3 Head Coaches searching for the most suitable. For now, they stopped with Roberto Mancini, as he’s coaching giving the results. They took second place in UEFA Nations League by losing only to Portugal in Lisbon. Now Italian national squad strongly concentrated to defensive football.
The last results showed, that they conceded only 1 goal in the last 6 games. They won 4 out of the last 6 matches in all competition, which is a really great result and a confident bid for the desire to win first place in qualifying. In Euro2020 qualification, they won already against Finland 2:0, Liechtenstein 6:0 and Greece in Athens 3:0.
Roberto Mancini called very interesting squad with only 4 players that play outside Italy. Marco Verratti – Paris SG, Jorginho and Emerson Palmieri – Chelsea and Vincenzo Grifo – Freiburg. There are 5 players from Juventus and 6 players from Roma. We hope the Italian national team will find their best game with Mancini and will return former glory.

Bosnia & Herzegovina is a very physically strong team with great players from different top Europeans clubs. Unfortunately, they failed to take the second place in World Cup qualification two years ago, as Greece overtook them. They surprisingly lost to Cyprus in a very important game. After, they played in UEFA Nations League in League B and took the 1st place and next time they will play in League B against stronger opponents. In the 2018 year they have lost only twice against Spain and Mexico in Friendly matches with the same 1:0 result. Moreover, they won 6 out of 14 matches in all competitions.
In Euro 2020 qualification they once again playing with Greece in one group and already have drawn the home match. This rivalry should be very principal, as Italy is favorites to take 1st place and they need to fight for second. However, they failed to succeed against Finland in Tampere and lost with 2:0 result. Edin Dzeko is squads captain, moreover, there are several other very experienced players. Miralem Pjanic, Ervin Zukanovic, and Edin Dzeko know the Italian style of game and strengths, so they need to use that knowledge for benefit of the team.
