THE UNDER 21's
Up first under the spotlight is Juventus' Emil Audero. The young goalkeeper made his Bianconeri debut on the final league match of last season, away to Bologna in a 2-1 win. This year he's currently on loan at Filippo Inzaghi's Venezia in Serie B, where he has played 19 times and kept six cleansheets. In addition, Audero made two apperances for Luigi Di Biagio's Italy Under-21's in wins over Morocco on 10 October and over Russia on 14 November
Audero's captain at Under-21 level is Rolando Mandragora, who also made his Juve debut last season, at home to Genoa. This term he finds himself on loan at Crotone where he has been an ever-present, making 20 appearances and playing the full 90 minutes for I Pitagorici. He also managed to score a fantastic goal for his loan side in a 2-0 win against Benevento back on 24 September.
