The opportunity with Wales is an opportunity for the former viola to subvert Mancini’s hierarchies. Knowing that he can bring that international stature to the blue, built with a Champions as a protagonist, which many teammates still do not have
Juve’s best player of the season, who became a continental level player in his first year in a top club, Federico Chiesa finds himself in the national team to start running again from that position of outsider that clashes not so much with the performance of the Azzurri, who are flying with the wind stern, as well as with the former viola’s season in the first season in which he was able to consecrate himself as a player not only at the top of the championship but already capable of making a difference even in an international context. Now that he has to regain positions despite the credit he could boast, the only tool he has at his disposal to subvert the current hierarchies is the field: the possibility to do so is today, against Wales.
In Roberto Mancini’s playing system, who has clear first choices in the trident with Lorenzo Insigne on one side and Domenico Berardi on the other, the Juventus winger finds himself playing for the right place with the Sassuolo striker, who in the wake of his best career season, he seems to have been tailored for the coach’s system, especially at this level of continuity and performance. To try to carve out a place in the sun, thanks to the possibility of putting his hand to the typical formation with the qualification already acquired, Chiesa slipped a hat-trick in the match played the day after the match against Switzerland. Not that it is a reliable test, but it tells of his commitment to climb positions by staying on the piece to be ready when he gets the chance. The time is now.
On his side, Federico Chiesa can bring the technical and trustworthy heritage of a season in which the Juventus debut was the soul and one of the few good news for the Lady, closing the debut season in Turin with a big booty , 14 goals and 9 assists, in addition to everything in terms of attitude, personality and contribution to the team that does not end up in the scoreboard. But above all one of the few things missing in many of the players of this beautiful and winning national team: an international depth, acquired by Chiesa with a season in the Champions League experienced as a protagonist, especially as the level rose, up to (unfortunately for him ) three goals in two games against Porto, in his first knockout challenge on the top continental stage. Wales or not Wales, a treasure for Mancini: maybe it will come good later.
