Lazio’s Mattia Zaccagni Performs Well in Azzurri Debut vs Turkey

By Apollo Heyes -

Mattia Zaccagni made his Azzurri debut in last night’s 3-1 friendly win over Turkey, where he had a decent game.

The 26-year-old Italian winger finally managed to earn his first cap for the national team in last night’s friendly, taking Nicolo Zaniolo’s place in the second half of the match. His strong performances under Maurizio Sarri this season have seem him rightly earn a place in the squad.
