14 National Teams. 14 red and black National Team players. In more than one continent and in more than one category. A considerable number, a substance and prestigious one.
It bear comparison also with other important moments of the less recent red and black history, the kind of players involved with their respective National Teams, some are still busy with World and European qualifications, others are on their way home.
IN ITALY. Among the 5 player summoned by Coach Giampiero Ventura, the most expended were Bonaventura, De Sciglio and Antonelli, but Montolivo took the field too. The Donnarumma’s historical debut at 17 years and 6 month old completed the picture. Non only A Series National Team: also Calabria and Romagnoli (at first summoned by Ventura, then on the field against Serbia) with the Under 21 Team, Locatelli and Plizzari with the Under 19 Team have been summoned and are showing their performances.
IN EUROPE. Juraj Kucka didn’t take the field with Slovakia and could be near to his way back to Milanello.
IN ASIA AND SOUTH AMERICA. Four different National Teams for Honda (Japan), Bacca (Colombia), Gustavo Gomez (Paraguay) and Mati Fernandez (Cile). Bacca made also an assist for James Rodriguez first goal against Venezuela. It could have scored on penalty too, but now he’s waited by many more matches to prove himself.
