The fifth win against perhaps the strongest team is now possible. But to stop Lukaku’s Red Devils you need important skills. And the blues have them
Here we are at the Pillars of Hercules, where an unknown world begins. So far Mancini’s Italy trip has been exciting, we have 31 results in a row, we have won 4 out of 4 games at the European Championships. But it is the first time that we face a great team in a great event: Belgium, first in the Uefa ranking for 3 years, “perhaps the strongest in the world with France” (Mancini dixit); and it is the first time we face dominant champions like Lukaku, De Bruyne and Eden Hazard (if they play). Will we be up to it?
