Is the national team still without a first striker? The fault (and the solution) is in the youth sectors
Paolo Rossi. Altobelli. Boninsegna. Vialli, Schillaci. Bobo Vieri, Inzaghi, Montella, all of the same generation. And then Gilardino and Luca Toni, the latest world champions. The blue story is filled with 9 caps. We no longer have them. And the call-up of Mateo Retegui, “taken” from Argentina, is the definitive sign of the decline of the role: Italian football is no longer able to produce center forwards of international level. Attempts have not been lacking: in no particular order, Balotelli, Gabbiadini, Immobile, Belotti, Pellè, Zaza, those who have not evolved as hoped such as Paloschi, Petagna, Cerri, Cutrone, the hopes now placed in Kean, Raspadori, Pinamonti, Chess. But real bombers, little or nothing: the Serie A scorers ranking cries.
