Nicolò Zaniolo, born in 1999, has entered the history of Champions League

19 years. The first eighth of the Champions League final of your life. Your team must score goals to solve a difficult night.
Edin Dzeko protects her, in the area, you pass it and you mark.
Under your curve.
Six minutes later, again.

Nicolo is not a dream, it’s all true!

Nicolò Zaniolo, class 1999, yesterday entered the history of the Champions League scoring an incredible double at Porto at nineteen.
He made his debut against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, now Mr. Di Francesco can not do without it, a predestined one.
The future of the Italian national team.


When in September Roberto Mancini had summoned Nicolò Zaniolo to the National team, a boy of just 19 who had never made his debut in the top flight, many have wondered why he had done so. Now, almost 5 months after that call, all football fans have understood that the commissioner had seen us along and that Zaniolo is probably the best prospect of our Championship.

In addition to this, an absolute protagonist in the first leg of the Champions League knockout round against Porto, Nicolò has become the youngest Italian to score twice in the history of the competition. A magical evening for the 19 year old Zaniolo, predestined of blue football with the benediction of Fabio Capello: “He has personality, strength and quality. Always look for the game like Pogba”

Is Nicolò Zaniolo the heir of Totti?

Born in Massa on July 2, 1999, Nicolò Zaniolo was taken by the youth of the Salernitana in 2008. Two years are enough and the talent scout Fiorentina decide to focus on the boy to grow in the nursery. In 2016 he frees himself from Fiorentina and goes to play for the spring of Virtus Entella, the following year he makes his professional debut at only 17 years: he will play 7 games in Serie B, enough to convince Inter to bet on his talent and offer 2 million euros to the Ligurian company to win it.

In the 2017/2018 season – the first in a Serie A team – Nicolò does not take the field for even a minute, but has the opportunity to show off first in the Primavera championship (won with Inter), then at the European under 19, competition in which shines and becomes decisive to win the final, then lost against Portugal.
Subsequently, in the summer it was sold to Rome as part of the Naingolann affair. He made his debut in Serie A on 26 September and scored his first goal in the top flight on 26 December, from that moment he grew exponentially scoring 5 goals in the last 9 matches, the last of which against Porto in the Champions League.

Moreover, little is known about his private life, he is a reserved boy who puts his mind and body into the dream of becoming a professional football player. Always with him, in every game, to support him and the first fan is his mother Francesca Costa, very popular on Instagram.
