Matters of medals
Unlike the English after the knockout at the European Championships against Roberto Mancini’s Italy, in fact, no Spanish player has taken the silver medal off his neck on the pitch. The team of Luis Enrique, led by his captain, Sergio Busquets, was the first to walk on the stage set up on the pitch of the Meazza, to receive the homages of Uefa and also the medal reserved for the runners-up. To reinforce the behavior of the Red Furies on the pitch were also the fans present at the San Siro stadium who immediately after the triple whistle applauded France who won the trophy. Not only that, also because Luis Enrique himself wanted to pay homage to his opponents and his colleague Didier Deschamps who partially redeemed himself after a negative European. This gesture of fairplay by the Spaniards did not go unnoticed and was indeed praised and many from Italy wanted to compare it to what happened with the British.
