Mancini, in particular, has done well with the management of his squad so far this summer and only third choice goalkeeper Alex Meret is yet to play a single minute of football.

Both and Chiesa came off the bench to be ’s extra-time heroes in the 2-1 win over in the Round of 16, and the forward then started against and will likely do so again on Tuesday. That’ll leave Domenico Berardi, Locatelli and even as likely go-to options if things aren’t quite going to plan, so will have to concern themselves with a lot more than the XI who start.
