The majority of the crowd for Tuesday night’s game is likely to be neutral due to travel restrictions on the Cove 19
Roberto Mancini says it is “very unfair” that Italian and Spanish fans will not be able to travel to the Euro 2020 semi-finals at Wimbledon on Tuesday.
The travel ban on Coved-19 means that supporters of both countries cannot travel to England for the game, yet the permitting capacity at Wembley has been increased to 60,000.
This means that the only supporters on both sides will be those already based in the UK, with the majority likely to be neutral.
What did Mansini say?
Talking about the ticket situation, Azuri’s head coach Mansini told reporters: “I think it’s very unfair if I’m completely honest.
“We’re better off playing in front of a crowd because we play in front of very few people. That’s usually great about football and entertainment. But I think it’s very unfair that we have Italian fans Not half a stadium full of and half a stadium full of Spaniards.
Beware of Mankini favorite tags
Italy are taking part in the game because their favorites have been unbeaten in 32 matches. Breaking an 82-year-old record in the process.
This record-breaking run includes 13 consecutive victories, most recently impressive World No. 1 beat Belgium 2-1 In the quarter finals
Despite his good form, Mancini is wary of his side’s chances at Wembley.
“I hope it’s okay [that Italy will win] But we know it won’t be easy.
“We know we need to build a big performance because Spain is at the top. Despite the fact that they have brought in some young players, they still have a great squad and a very capable coach, so it will be a tough competition.
