Belotti's breakthrough season

Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall discusses Andrea Belotti’s potential to have his best season to date for Torino and Italy.

Under the floodlights of the Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium, Roberto Mancini was seething as his Azzurri team made it hard work taking apart 10-man Armenia, but there was a positive. Andrea Belotti’s brace (even if the second goal was eventually awarded as an own goal) saved the day and sent a message to his Coach that in this new look Italy team, he is to be the front man. It sometimes feels like the Granata hitman has been around forever, but at 25 years of age, he is just getting started and he could be critical for both club and country this term.
