How France and Italy play and some statistics
France’s style of play is based on intensity, keeping the ball moving and dangerous attacks. There are constant passes in contact that discomfort a defense that comes back and generates inconveniences for them. The presence of Romain Ntamack stands out with his clarity to play as an opener and the forcefulness of Charles Ollivon as third line. Italy ‘s style of play is pragmatic and seeks to be patient in order to force some infringement from the opponent and thus score points. They do not usually have a great performance in key matches. They don’t have as many players as Castro Giovanni who knew how to absorb the pressure. The presence of the Italian-Argentine Juan Ignacio Brex stands out.
