Frattesi completes the blue trident chosen by Nicolato for the challenge to Ireland Under 21, valid for qualifying for the 2021 European Championship: with him Pinamonti and Scamacca. Bench instead for Kean, like Cutrone and Sottil, while Carraro, Tonali and Locatelli find space in midfield. In defense instead space to Bastoni-Marchizza in the center, while Del Prato and lateral Pellegrini, in front of Carnesecchi, preferred to Plizzari. These are the official formations of the British-Italian challenge:
IRELAND U21 (3-5-2): Kelleher; Scales, O'Shea, Masterson; O'Connor, Ronan, Coventry, Molumby, Elbouzedi; Idah, Parrott.
Coach: Stephen Kenny.
ITALY U21 (4-3-3): Carnesecchi; Del Prato, Bastoni, Marchizza, Pellegrini; Locatelli, Tonali, Carraro; Frattesi, Pinamonti, Scamacca.
Coach: Paolo Nicolato.
