Lazio building towards success

The Biancocelesti consistently seem to be on the verge of greatness, but Sam Wilson feels it's an exciting time to be a Lazio fan.

Arguably, very few sides have been closer to deserving a place in the Champions League over the past few seasons than Lazio. In the 2017-18 season, the club missed out on fourth spot after a devastating loss to Inter on the final day of the season, whilst the last campaign ended in a bittersweet manner, finishing eighth in Serie A whilst lifting the Coppa Italia trophy.

Italy balance progress and the present

The Azzurri have a generation of talented young players, but Jay Cassano observes Roberto Mancini using them judiciously in the service of immediate results.

One of the biggest problems facing the Italian national team today is that there are relatively few players in what we ambiguously refer to as a footballer’s “prime.” That age from about 27 to 31, plus a couple more years if they’re a defender.
