Former Italy and Udinese striker Antonio di Natale has sung the praises for Juventus attacker Fede Chiesa.

Chiesa will be key for Italy ahead of the Euro 2020 final against England.

Di Natale told Gazzetta dello Sport: “If Chiesa wasn't a strong player, Juventus wouldn't have invested so much in him. Already in his first season in Turin he showed what he is worth. And at Euro 2020, he's confirming his talent with some great plays and goals.

“The one he scored against Spain is of rare beauty. He is a player I like a lot because he is unpredictable. He goes right, left, and makes some fakes. You never know where he's going," added the Udinese legend.

“Besides, he's a serious guy. He grows and gets stronger with every day, you can see that he wants to improve. I played against his father who is also a very good person.

“However, I don't see him playing as a striker. I have always said that I see more Insigne in that role, as he's showing great maturity. He also scored an impressive goal. The great thing about Mancini's team is that one or two different players explode in every match."
