“England Beware, Roberto Mancini Is Preparing Italy For War At Wembley”, Micah Richards

Posted by

The plotting and messaging will have begun a long time ago. Roberto Mancini has a knack for getting into your thoughts so that when the big day arrives, you’ll be ready to run through a brick wall.

The generals who have led Italy into combat during this European Championship are Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci, but one man — and one man alone — will be responsible for ensuring the war is won. Mancini has a way of encouraging you and making you feel confident in your abilities.

This is something Gareth Southgate and England’s players must grasp. After seen Mancini in action at Manchester City, I’m confident that the tone of his pre-match statement will be the same: he’ll tell Italy’s side that they are better than England in every aspect, whether he thinks it or not.

He’ll then move on to other important issues, such as going out and keeping the fans quiet, frustrating them into silence, and then playing the football that you’re familiar with. Above all, he’ll tell them in the dressing room to forget about their nerves and go enjoy the moment.
