Giuseppe Rossi: A career that could have been

Sep 16 2014 5:34am CDT | Source: forzitalianfootball

Football can be a cruel sport at times, and Giuseppe Rossi knows this too well. The 27-year-old has been savaged by injury for much of his career, and has prevented him from perhaps becoming a household name in world football. You could forgive Rossi for throwing in the towel and losing faith in football after his recent setback, ruled out for at least five months following an injury to his knee meniscus. This latest injury to t ...

Mattia Destro Must Take His Chance to Remind Roma Just How Good He Can Be

Sep 12 2014 12:12am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

This has been a summer of highs and lows for Mattia Destro. It began with the player being selected for Cesare Prandelli’s 30-man Italy squad ahead of the World Cup, only to eventually miss out on a place in the final 23. It continued with him being linked to a lucrative Premier League move, only to instead start the season as an unused substitute in Roma’s win over Fiorentina.  That is not to suggest that the striker was sad to stay with the Giallorossi. Destro had told Corriere dell ...

Simone Zaza: The man who replaced Mario Balotelli

Sep 10 2014 9:13am CDT | Source: forzitalianfootball

Enigmatic striker Mario Balotelli has unsurprisingly become the scapegoat after Italy’s early elimination from the 2014 World Cup. Antonio Conte’s predecessor, Cesare Prandelli, relied on ‘Super Mario’ to be a prolific finisher for the Azzurri, a task which Balotelli overall failed to accomplish on the world stage. Conte did not call-up Balotelli for the matches against the Netherlands and Norway in the latest in ...
