“Now anything can happen”. The day after qualifying for the semi-finals of UEFA Euro 2020, FIGC president Gabriele Gravina spoke about the results achieved so far by the Azzurri, who have returned to be among the top four teams in Europe.
He inevitably spoke about Leonardo Spinazzola, the Azzurri full-back who has twice been named ‘Star of the Match’ in this European Championship, against Turkey and against Austria, and who yesterday left the field in tears, after suffering an injury: “I felt very sorry for Spinazzola, because he had been giving so much to this team. I wish him the best of luck for a quick return, because not only is he a great professional, but he has also shown great personal qualities”. Following the team’s lunch, the Azzurri defender was accompanied by the head of the Club Italia Medical Area Andrea Ferretti as they left the national team training camp to carry out the necessary checks in Rome after yesterday’s injury. If the diagnosis is confirmed (clinical signs of an injury to the left achilles tendon emerged yesterday), the player will return directly to his club.
