Kean: 'I made a mistake'

Everton forward Moise Kean admits he “made a mistake” and insists he is ready to move on and fight for his place in the Premier League.

The Italy international has been linked with a move back to Serie A after a tough start to life at Goodison Park. He has lately been punished for tardiness, as he was dropped by both club and national team.

The former Juventus starlet bounced back with a brace for the Azzurrini against Armenia, and is now looking to do the same at Everton.

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?
