After the success against Switzerland, the coach of Italy Roberto Mancini spoke to the microphones of Rai Sport: “Switzerland are a strong team. It was a very hard game. We could have scored earlier, we suffered when there was suffering but in the end it is a well-deserved victory.”
How did you win this game?
“We won it thinking we wanted to win it at all costs. We took them high, we had chances. The boys were very good. It was the second game in five days, very hot. They spent a lot”.
The game system change?
“It’s a change of system to be a little more relaxed. We had spent a lot and needed to breathe a little”.
“Let’s hope it’s nothing serious. We’ll see tomorrow.”
No calculations with Wales?
“We have to play to win the next one too. We’ll see what happens.”
Do you dedicate it?
“I dedicate it to everyone. To the people who are suffering, to all the Italians who are suffering at this moment”.
3-0 to Switzerland, Italy is in the round of 16 of the European Championship!
