Huracan winger and Armenia international Norberto Briasco confirmed “contacts” with Milan, but he does not “want to rush” the move.

His full name is Norberto Alejandro Briasco Balekian.

U21: Italy hit Armenia for six

Paolo Nicolato singled out Moise Kean for praise after the “spirited” Everton striker scored twice in Italy Under-21’s 6-0 thrashing of Armenia on Tuesday.

The European Under-21 Championship qualifier was due to kick off at 17:30 GMT in the Sicilian city of Catania, but adverse conditions meant the match could not get going until 20:00.

Nevertheless, it was worth the wait as the Azzurrini managed to almost emulate the seniors’ 9-1 demolition of Armenia last night.

This is not your usual Italy

An Italy side that scores nine goals and is hungry for more, this is definitely not the Nazionale Martin Mork is accustomed to, but points to a fascinating future.

Roberto Mancini’s Italy had already qualified for Euro 2020, setting a new standard by breaking Vittorio Pozzo’s record from the 1930s, but they weren’t ready to stop there. Rewind one year and who would have thought this Italy would be the one going into the history books?

Bonucci: 'Enjoyable Azzurri'

Leonardo Bonucci confessed he has “never enjoyed my time with Italy this much” after beating Armenia 9-1, but it won’t count until Euro 2020.

The Azzurri almost equalled their biggest ever victory, having crushed USA 9-0 in an Olympics match in 1948, to maintain their 100 per cent record in Group J.

“Records are fairly meaningless without silverware. If we want to make it count, we have to do it next summer,” Bonucci told Rai Sport.
