The brace of Leonardo Bonucci from the disk makes the happy Juventus and increases the blue regrets. What would have happened if to take the decisive penalty in the final of Italy–Swiss had been the Juventus defender and not Jorginho?
The question, of course, will never have a certain answer but Bonucci interviewed by ‘DAZN’ reiterates that the decision on the matter was not up to him, however he said he was willing to appear on the spot also in the national team.
“A week ago the penalty taker was Jorginho, it was right for him to throw it. If he had asked me I would have thrown it without problems, but he was the penalty taker, so that’s right. We have to think about working day by day to get to March in our best form. If needed in the future? I will definitely be there. “
Meanwhile, as mentioned, to enjoy an implacable Bonucci from the spot is Juventus who in the absence of the injured Dybala decided to promote the defender as the team’s penalty taker. Choice proved very apt.
Chosen by Goal
The one scored against Lazio from eleven meters is also Bonucci’s first brace ever in Serie A. Yet another milestone in a career without limits, from defense leader to penalty shooter.
