Nunziatas Azzurrini start the race for the 2025 European Championship: The start takes place in Italy

The Italian U21 team’s journey to the 2025 European Football Championship in Slovakia begins tomorrow with Italy – Latvia, which will be played in Jurmala, a city 20 km from the capital Riga, at 4:00 p.m. live on Rai2. It is the first game of qualification (Group A).

New course for the “Azzurrini” and new coach on the bench, Carmine Nunziata, after the shocking elimination at the European Championships in this category. Sweet words from the new coach: “The feedback is definitely good, also because I already knew some of the guys. We have to evaluate the physical condition of the players, especially those of Turicchia, Baldanzi and Miretti, who have some problems.” “The most important thing is to start the group well: when these competitions take place, I have always thought that the first Game is very important,” added Nunziata, who has been with the team in Latvia since yesterday.

The new captain of the U21 national team will be Lorenzo Pirola. A great satisfaction for the Salernitana defender, born in 2002, who is one of the few to be reconfirmed, mainly for personal reasons and for his undeniable value. The decision was made official by the Azzurri selector himself in the press conference before his debut on the bench tomorrow on the Latvian pitch: The game will be played at 4 p.m. at the Slokas Stadium in Jurmala and counts towards the qualification for the Euro 2025 category. The second game of this window takes place on Tuesday September 12th: another away game for Italy, probably in Turkey (6.30 p.m. Italian time in Kocaeli).
