Giorgio Chiellini, captain of the Italian national team, said last Tuesday, ahead of the penalty shoot-out Italy won against Spain, the Spanish captain Jordi Alba "made a mistake" in deciding which area to take the penalties and that he made him "notice, jokingly".
"We had to say at which end to take the penalties and he made a mistake in the decision, I told him, jokingly," Chiellini explained in an interview published by UEFA.
"We have had an extraordinary European Championship. Each player contributed their grain of sand. That we’re here, the credit goes to everyone and a great coach (Roberto Mancini).”
“During the shoot-out I hugged Locatelli, the whole time. He was desperate after missing the penalty, I shared with him emotions that will live forever. In the end there was a hug, a liberation, and a tear or two after Jorginho’s penalty.”
