Monza’s midfielder Andrea Colpani has recently received his first call-up to the national team, after catching the eye with his performances. The Monza team has been impressive in Serie A, playing an entertaining and modern style of football, putting them in the running for a European spot. Colpani, a 1999-class player, is a rising talent from Brescia, honed in Atalanta’s youth academy. He has been with Monza since 2020, and has quickly made an impact, scoring 5 goals in 10 league appearances so far this season.
“Colpani is a player with old-school flair, he is surprising and unpredictable on the field,” says the Monza coach, praising the midfielder’s unique playing style. He has been compared to Argentine midfielder Javier Pastore due to his technical abilities and versatility on the field.
With his impressive performances, Colpani has also earned a call-up to the Italy Under 21 national team, showcasing his potential at an international level. Head coach Spalletti has been keeping an eye on him and it’s only a matter of time before he makes the step up to the senior national team, the coach added.
The young midfielder’s skills would provide Italy with the creativity and technical ability that the team currently lacks. The hope is that Colpani can reach the top level of football and become an asset for the national team, adding a new dimension to the squad.
