Baggio Italy Azzurri

Italy coach Giampiero Ventura selected three Number 10s in his line-up when asked to choose his all-time best Azzurri XI.

Legends Roberto Baggio, Gianni Rivera and Sandro Mazzola made it into his illustrious fantasy team team whilst the likes of Francesco Totti, Alessandro Del Piero and Andrea Pirlo failed to make the side.

The former Torino coach was asked to select his ultimate Italy team whilst paying a visit to all 20 teams in Serie A.

AC Milan idol Gianni Rivera was chosen as part of a midfield three (alongside Franco Causio and Romeo Benetti) whilst Rivera’s old playmaking rival, Inter’s Sandro Mazzola, forms an exciting strike partnership with Gigi Riva.

Fantasista legend Roberto Baggio was chosen in between Rivera in midfield and  Mazzola in attack, with Ventura stating that: “He entertained me many times.”

The 68 year old tactician avoided any ‘real-life’ controversies by only choosing players who have retired from the game.

Ventura’s  full team is below. We’ll leave it to you to decide who gets the number 10 shirt…
