Roberto Mancini has admonished the forwards at Italy to make more impact, following their 1-0 loss to Portugal in the Nations League.
The Italy gaffer started with two strikers, but Simone Zaza and Ciro Immobile failed to effect a positive.
Andre Silva scored early in the second half to give Portugal the win over Mancini’s men.
The result leaves Italy with a single point from two Nations League games, and Mancini accepts their problem lies in attack.
“Unfortunately, we are making errors and need to try to reduce them,” Mancini told Rai Sport after the game.
“But the boys gave everything they had. We have to score goals in order to win, so we must find new solutions and do more in attack.
“In the first half we had a lot more of the ball with the two forwards, as at least they can play between themselves up there, so it can be an important option.”
