No Calabria no problem. Thank God!!!! Could have been more than 2 or 3 goals even.
Try Calabria as CB, Adli as RWB and de Katelaere as CF. All 3 will shine in their new roles in this formation.
Adli as RWB?
this is a terrible idea. Calabria isnt as tall or as strong to be a CB. Adil as RWB ? He isnt fast, has never played the role. Either one could’ve replaced Krunic instead. But he did ok, so what do we know
What’s the deal with all this hate for Calabria, he’s been out of action for some time with injury. This ain’t FM. Anxious to see what you’ll be spitting about Maignan when he comes back and doesn’t perform from that start.
I know, i actually think he came back too early, which is why he struggled and now is injured again.
