Italy lost 1-0 to Portugal yesterday, but a positive takeaway for Milan fans should be that four Milan players started for Italy.

Yes, Italy gave up a goal to Portugal without Cristiano Ronaldo, but hey, they can only keep the other team at bay for so long. Plus, Gianluigi made a couple really nice saves. Hopefully Donnarumma, Alessio Romagnoli, and Mattia Caldara can get some time together in Milan’s first team and gel into an outstanding defensive block for both club and country.

On to the links.
