In the fourth round of the UEFA Europa League A-level match that ended early this morning, Italy drew 1-1 at home with the Netherlands. After the game, Florenzi spoke for his teammate Immobile in an interview, saying that the media were against Immobile. Lai is too harsh, he should be regarded as an Italian hero.
We are proud of the team's performance, everyone tried their best, we must continue to play this kind of football.
I saw that the Italian team forced the Dutch team to completely change their tactics. For the first time in a long time, they put up a five-back formation, which means they are really afraid of our football style. One thing should make us proud. I saw an Italian team that has never lost its characteristics, style and what the coach wants.
We could have scored more goals, but I recently saw something very bad and I feel I should say it out loud. Missing the chance to break a goal is a common occurrence. What should not happen is the way the media treat Immobile.
This is the player who scored 36 Serie A goals last season, but he is regarded as a player who cannot be worse. If Lewand is like him, he will be regarded as the king.
Immobile scored 36 goals last season and won the European Golden Boot, so he should be considered an Italian hero. If he didn't score a few games, it shouldn't be considered a disaster.
He is a very good guy, a champion, and a benchmark for all of us. We are all grateful for what he has brought, but those outside the Italian national team seem to have such a low evaluation of Immobile.
