Italy Under-21s boss Luigi Di Biagio has hailed the ‘incredible’ impact of Pescara boss Zdenek Zeman on the Azzurri’s young players.
Zeman played a key role in the development of several Italy internationals, including Ciro Immobile, Marco Verratti and Lorenzo Insigne, and Di Biagio watched his U21s side lose 2-1 to Pescara on Thursday night.
“It was a friendly that allowed us to get minutes under our belts because many of these lads haven’t played for a while,” he said after the match.
