A very bad page contrary to the values of sport that happened during the match between Italy and Belgium, a challenge won by the Azzurri and valid for the straight match of the quarter-finals of Euro2020. During the second half Leonardo Spinazzola had to leave the pitch in tears due to a serious injury to the Achilles tendon – probably the Roma left-back suffered a complete rupture of the tendon, instrumental examinations are awaited after the first diagnosis made in the heat – and Thibaut Courtois made a shameful accusation against him.
“Truken van de foor noemen we daat” the post appeared among the Instagram stories with the image of the Italian footballer still on the ground. The translation leaves no room for doubt: “Tricks of the trade as we call them”. The accusation against Spinazzola, who came out on a stretcher crying, is that he wasted time to help his national team, but in reality what he suffered is perhaps the worst possible injury for a player and according to some estimates, which could be more precise only after further checks, he could remain away from the field even for the beauty of 9 months. The story was published by someone from the family-entourage of the Real Madrid goalkeeper present in the stands of the Munich stadium, but Courtois did not erase the message of shame until after several hours.
Also noteworthy is the controversial sentence of Jan Vertonghen, captain and leader of Belgium: “We made a mistake on Barella’s goal, we must not keep the ball in the last sixteen meters. Italy has a good team, just read the statistics. they complimented them too much, they made me too angry. ”The defeat against Italy for the Red Devils players did not go down: knowing how to lose is a matter of style and obviously they have forgotten it at home.
