Fucking hell this thread has become pathetic. 

The conditions couldn't have been worse for a debut performance. But he gave Chelsea fans something to be positive about. Well done, son.

This thread is beyond pathetic. People are actually calling him Torres #2 for 20 minutes of play where he was completely isolated upfront and a penalty he missed. What would you expect Morata to do in

As Conte said, he is a very nice boy who you would be delighted with if your daughter was dating them.

Having a reasonably good season for Juventus despite their struggles under Pirlo. Scored 7 goals and has 8 assists in 17 starts and 5 sub appearances in the league. Plus has scored another 9 goals and 1 assist across 12 appearances in the CL and other 2 domestic cups.

Wasnt great v Georgia though by all accounts for Spain.

I am sure he will be fine, especially as he was not the only one to miss (unlike Mbappe) and he did score a monster goal as well

Tbf he got Spain back in the game with his goal but always looked nervous walking up for the pen.

They will probably hammer him in the Spanish media again but really, the boy who plays for Sociedad missed two big sitters in the 90 minutes. He really deserves huge blame if anyone in that Spanish team does after the game.

Even then, Luis Enrique didn’t bring in a proper CF until the 62nd minute. It may have worked in certain parts of their performance but they had 16 shots and 5 on target compared to Italy’s 7 shots 4 on target. One team played with a number 9 for the full duration another didn’t. He also brought on a defensive midfielder when they were needing a goal…

But it will be one player missing a penalty that is the big talking point.

Enrique actually pwned Mancini to a point with his false 9 system

it pulled Jorginho out of his comfort zone a lot, made him follow Olmo and Oyarzabal all over the pitch far more than a standard CF would have

it is just the lack of clinical finishing that did Spain in

I think they are both outstanding football managers

BY FAR the 2 best in the entire tournament

The false 9 did give them a good hold in the game and superiority in midfield but I always fancied Italy to nick it, even when it was 0-0, as they always had a natural striker in and around the box.

Even their goal, it may have came from Chiesa but the whole situation where he gets the ball and shoots arise from a striker breaking his neck to run in behind as opposed to another midfielder coming off the CBs in and around the number 6 when your dominating possession.

Even more so if your going to play a false 9, Ferran Torres has got 8 goals at international level whilst Mikel Oyarzabal has 5, can you really rely on these guys in big tournaments and big games enough to drop your top scorer and competition top scorer in a semi final?
