The left foot tendon.
“It was a great feeling to be able to carry my family name into European and world football. I am proud to be the son of my father. I spoke to my father that night, I was happy for my goal, but above all because Italy passed”, he said in an interview with Sky Sport Italy.
Returning to the match against Belgium, Chiesa highlighted coach Roberto Mancini, saying: “We played a great match, but thanks to the work that the coach has developed in the last two years, our football idea, and our enthusiasm. We are like brothers. Now the results are coming.”
In this sense, Chiesa hopes to dedicate another victory to Spinazzola, who will be on hold for several months. “I’m sorry for Spina, he had a big euro and was a regular player. It’s not good to lose a brother. Let’s recover and try to devote something good to him, joy”, he added.
