“It is a shame that a European champion team did not go right to the World Cup”. Roberto Baggio thus expresses himself on Italy’s absence from the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The ‘Divin Codino’ speaks in a meeting with journalists on the occasion of the inaugural flight of the new A350 from Rome to Buenos Aires. “It’s madness. – he says – will these guys have the right to a prize for what they have done? This is the hardest thing to accept. It is absurd that a team that has done what it has done will not go to the world championship”. And Baggio, about to leave for Buenos Aires, comments on the outcome of last night’s match at Wembley between Italy and Argentina, clearly won 3-0 by the seleccion. Argentina “had a good game, it’s a team made up of great talents”, he points out. “Italy suffered from the lack of qualification for the World Cup” and, for this reason, they suffer from a lack of “serenity”.
Now, for Baggio, the Azzurri and coach Roberto Mancini must look ahead: “Mancini must stay there, he must work. He did extraordinary things at the European Championships”. There is a central problem that is crucial and it is that of “young people: we have talents that do not find space in the national team”, underlines Baggio. A joke about the Serie A championship just ended: “It was nice. He made us stand there with bated breath between Milan and Inter,” he says. “I did not mind Napoli either” while Juventus “it is right that you too breathe after 9 years in a row”, concludes Baggio with a joke.
