Toni: 'Italy have real problem'

Luca Toni believes Italy have a ‘real problem’ in attack as ‘apart from Ciro Immobile, there’s no Italian who has scored more than 15 goals’.

Immobile is Serie A’s runaway Capocannoniere with 27 goals this season, but other than him Andrea Petagna and the uncapped Francesco Caputo are the only Italians to have scored more than 10 times.

Toni, on the other hand, came from a generation of Azzurri hitmen that included Christian Vieri, Filippo Inzaghi, Alessandro Del Piero and Francesco Totti.

“Do you remember when we were in the national team?” said the ex-Fiorentina forward during an Instagram Live session with Christian Vieri.

“We were all great strikers and, if one of us hadn’t scored at least 20 goals, we’d make fun of them.

“Now, instead, apart from Immobile who’s doing really well, there’s no Italian who has scored more than 15 goals. It’s a real problem.”
