(ANSA) – MUNICH, 02 JUL – From Bari to Verona by plane, then by rental car to Munich. “For the national team this and more”, smiles Mimmo, 55, from Barletta, who started following Italy since the 1980 victory against England and did not miss this trip, with his two children, a granddaughter and four friends, among the many Italians who, together with the Belgian fans, are crowding the central streets of the German city, just a few hours from the challenge that is worth a place in the semifinals at Euro 2020. “We have seen all three matches in Rome and there were also the grandparents “, says Mimmo, black t-shirt with the words ‘Nationalist’ and tricolor around the neck, explaining that he had bought the tickets in 2019 and then, after the cancellation, he got them back during the pre-emption phase. “We would also have the pre-emption for the semifinal and final, we hope that the British government and Ceferin decide to do them on the continent – he says -. But let’s think one game at a time”. In the very central Marienplatz, at mid-morning the tables outside the pubs are already all occupied by fans wearing the blue shirt or that of the Red Devils. And at 10 o’clock the first ones could already meet in the surroundings of the stadium, where a laboratory for rapid Covid tests has been set up: to access the Allianz Arena a negative result obtained no more than 24 hours before is mandatory, the Green Pass (at 14 days after the second dose of vaccine) or the certificate of recovery. To avoid risks in Monaco, unlike other tournament venues, a fan zone has not been organized. (HANDLE).
