beat Colombia, goals from Casadei and Baldanzi

Italy defeated Colombia 3-1 in spectacular fashion and qualified for the semi-finals of the Under 20 World Cup. The Azzurrini celebrated with goals from Casadei, Baldanzi and Esposito.

Keep winning Italy! The national team led by Carmine Nunziata qualified for the semifinals of the Under 20 World Cup. In Argentina, the Azzurrini also defeated Colombia, bent 3-1. Another success in the sign of Casadei and Baldanzi, but Francesco Pio Esposito was also decisive. On Thursday 8 June in the semifinal Italy will face the winner of South Korea-Nigeria.

The match in San Juan starts late, because the previous quarter-final lasted 140 minutes, and was surprisingly won by Israel, who eliminated Brazil (3-2). Italy got off to a very strong start and in the 8th minute found the 1-0 goal with Casadei, the top scorer of the tournament, who headed in the development of a corner and scored the sixth goal in this event.

Colombia holds and holds, but the blue Under 20 is stronger and in the 38th minute with a splendid counter-attack action they double up with Tommaso Baldanzi, the Empoli player is showing all his value in this tournament.

The 2-0 is reassuring, but it’s not decisive. Nunziata charges him who at the beginning of the second half immediately find the 3-0 with a very nice goal from Francesco Pio Esposito (the third Esposito brother, the brothers Salvatore and Sebastiano play with Bari and Spezia). The game seems closed, but it is not. Colombia immediately shortens the gap and pushes for a good twenty minutes in which goalkeeper Desplanches is decisive on at least a couple of occasions.

As time goes by, the match gets closer and closer to Italy, which however has to struggle in the final because the Colombian players put it on the fight and some interventions were really tough, a couple of Cafeteros players seriously risked red light. The result doesn’t change anymore. Italy wins 3-1 and is in the semifinals.

Azzurrini in the top four and it’s already an extraordinary result. But I was dreaming you can. Thursday 8 June there will be the semifinal with the winner of South Korea-Nigeria, already faced in the group stage, the other semifinal will be played by Israel and the winner of the United States-Uruguay.
