Montella admires Fiorentina fightback

Vincenzo Montella was reassured by the Fiorentina fightback to hold Parma 1-1. “We saw a different team after the break.”

Gaetano Castrovilli’s diving header cancelled out the Gervinho counter-attack at the Stadio Franchi.

“We struggled and I didn’t like the attitude in the first half, as we lacked determination both on the ball and off it. We conceded when losing possession in midfield,” Montella told Sky Sport Italia.

Fiorentina deny Chiesa dive

Fiorentina have leapt to the defence of Federico Chiesa after the winger was booked for diving against Brescia.

Football Italia’s Chief Correspondent Richard Hall looks at the new era for the Italian U21 side, but seemingly with the same old problems.

After what seemed like constant disappointment, there is a new feeling of hope with Italy’s U21 team. There has never been any doubt around the talent at the Coach’s disposal, but that hasn’t stopped the team performing well below the levels expected.

Exiting at the group stage in a European Championship they were hosting was utterly unacceptable, so Gigi Di Biagio had to go. Now they have a new man in charge and so far results have been mixed ahead of today’s trip to Armenia.
