Weekly Italy Youth Report: Libor Kozak Goal Wins It For Lazio

Goal.com’s Rick D'Andrea rounds up how Serie A youth players performed during the last seven days...
Armin Bacinovic - 24/10/1989 - Palermo - Was given the chance to start for the Rosanero. The 20-year-old failed to inspire his side and almost cost his team a goal. Had a chance to score but could only fire his shot at Julio Cesar.

Marco D'Alessandro
- 17/2/1991 - Bari - Made his debut when coming on with five minutes to go, and tried his utmost to give the Biancorossi the win.

Abel Hernandez - 8/8/1990 - Palermo - The talented Uruguayan was kept quiet by the strong Inter defence.

Libor Kozak - 30/5/1989 - Lazio - Came on as an influential subsitute on the hour mark, and made his impact felt after only seven minutes, when the 21-year-old capitalised on a Sebastien Frey spill to score and give his side maximum points.

Adem Ljajic - 29/9/1991 - Fiorentina - The Serbian starlet was the only Viola player to score in his side's 2-1 loss to Fiorentina. He converted the penalty his team earned in the 19th minute.

Dominique Malonga - 8/1/1989 - Cesena - Malonga played 22 minutes in his side's 1-0 win over Lecce, but was unable to find the back of the net.

Ezequiel Munoz - 8/10/1990 - Palermo - The Argentine defender was a definite presence in the air, but lacked the skill to keep Samuel Eto'o at bay. Was turned inside-out too easily by the Cameroonian for his first goal.

Nnamdi Oduamadi - 17/10/1990 - Milan - The Nigerian came on against Catania with five minutes to go to make his season debut in Serie A.

Javier Pastore - 20/6/1989 - Palermo - Was a constant threat for the Sicilian side. Had a shot rebound off the 'keeper, which Illcic pounced on and scored, and could have earned a point had his shot not hit the post with two minutes to go.

Alexis Sanchez - 19/12/1988 - Udinese - The Chilean star was barely seen in his team's 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Juventus. Had only one real shot on target, but it went straight into the hands of Juventus goalkeeper Marco Storari.

Davide Santon - 2/1/1991 - Inter - The highly-rated wing-back made his return from a long inury lay-off and played 10 minutes.

Ezequiel Schelotto - 23/5/1989 - Cesena - The midfielder put in a workmanlike performance, helping the Seahorses to the top of the ladder.
