Italy national team coach Roberto Mancini received unpleasant news ahead of facing Lithuania in the continuation of the 2022 World Cup Qualification Group C match . Italy will play Lithuania at the Mapei Stadium in Reggio-Emilia, Italy, on Thursday (9/9/2021) early morning WIB.
However, ahead of the match, the Gli Azzurri were left behind by several players, namely strikers Ciro Immobile (Lazio) and Lorenzo Insigne (Napoli). As for Nicolo Zaniolo (AS Roma) it is doubtful that he can appear against Lithuania.

Young Sassuolo forward Giacomo Raspadori is likely to be Mancini’s choice, flanked by Juventus pair Federico Chiesa and Federico Bernardeschi. As for the last two matches of the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers , Italy were held to two consecutive draws, namely 1-1 by Bulgaria and 0-0 by Switzerland.
Mancini also expressed disappointment when Italy was detained by Switzerland. He alluded to the effectiveness of the Italian offensive. “Once again, we had too many missed opportunities to win the game,” said Mancini.
In addition, if they win the match or at least draw, the Euro 2020 champion will be alone as the national team with the longest unbeaten record. The world record for the longest unbeaten streak is currently shared by Italy and Brazil (1993-1996) who were unbeaten for 36 consecutive matches .
