Lazio and Simone Inzaghi rely on Ciro Immobile to lead the attack. Since arriving in the Capital (Rome), he has been a scoring sensation and absolute dream signing for Claudio Lotito and Igli Tare. For the Italian National Team, however, Roberto Mancini does not seem willing to do so.

Against Ukraine in the friendly match, he came into the match in the second half, but against Poland in the UEFA Nations League match, the Biancoceleste striker was not called upon at all, provoking controversy. Lorenzo Insigne, Federico Bernardeschi, and Federico Chiesa were the three attackers leading the line, with Kevin Lasagna coming into the match late as a sub ahead of the Neopolitan born striker.

Today, to the microphones of RMC Sport, Francesco Graziani spoke about Italy and Immobile: “I was thrilled to see Italy last night. I liked their desire to win, but I did not understand why Mancini chose Lasagna instead of Immobile. In the national team there must be hierarchies: between Immobile and Lasagna, I will always take the Lazio striker. Mancini, for me, must select players and not train. Immobile is not ok now, if I were him, I would have asked for a meeting with the coach”.
