ITA vs SMR Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Italy vs San Marino International Friendly Live Score 29 May


ITA vs SMR Dream11: This is a bizarre one but is also something of a theme for Italy ahead of their recent major tournaments in 2016 and 2014. Warm-up fixtures against the weakest sides in Europe appears to be counter-intuitive. In 2014, they drew 1-1 against Luxembourg and in 2016 they faced off against two of the 31 sides to not qualify for the Euros in Finland and Scotland. Roberto Mancini will have a couple of days to trim his 33-man squad following this match so it will be important for the players. San Marino, as with all the minor nations throughout Europe, have made slow progress since the creation of the UEFA Nations League and the development of modern day coaching but it would be daft to suggest this will be another Luxembourg 2014 situation for the Italians.
