Good work soccerates. It makes for an interesting read. That team would have fared very well in Serie A.

Corini can't play on the left, he is a playmaker, so I suggest this tactic:

..........LUCARELLI............TONI..........

.........................VERON...................

TONETTO................................CAMORANESI

..............CAMBIASSO....CORINI...........

...CANNAVARO........NESTA........THURAM

..................PAGLIUCA..................

It's a very good team, but there aren't any young players.
