Sacchi brands Italy U21 players 'SHAMEFUL'

Former AC Milan coach Arrigo Sacchi was shocked by the demise of Italy U21 last week.

While Italy drew their Nations League opener with Poland, the U21 side were beaten 3-0 by Slovakia in a friendly.

“The attitude of the Under-21s was shameful. They were presumptuous and arrogant. Often in football, the real enemies are not the opponents, but ourselves.

“This is a country where we'd gladly sell our souls to win, making no difference between a deserved or undeserved victory.

"We don't realise that a victory without being earned will not get you very far."
