THE ITALIAN NATIONAL TEAM TO RETURN TO THE TARDINI: A FRIENDLY AGAINST MOLDOVA ON 7 OCTOBER

Collecchio, 8 July 2020 – Following an announcement from the FIGC, it’s been made official that the Italian National Team will be returning to the Tardini. International fixtures for September and October were confirmed yesterday, with all matches having a 20:45 CEST kick-off. The Azzurri will be getting back to the pitch for their first two Nations League matches against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Friday 4 September at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence and then against the Netherlands on Monday 7 September at the Johan Cruyff ArenA in Amsterdam. The Azzurri will then be playing three matches in October, starting with a friendly against Moldova on Wednesday 7 October at the Stadio Ennio Tardini in Parma, before two Nations League clashes with Poland on Sunday 11 at the Energa Arena in Gdansk and the Netherlands on Wednesday 14 at San Siro in Milan.

This will be Italy’s eighth-ever appearance at the Crociati’s homeground: the Azzurri’s record up until now reads six wins and one loss (against France in 2012). The Azzurri’s last game at the Tardini came in March 2019, as Roberto Mancini’s side put six goals past Liechtenstein.
