A little more than a week after the triumph at Wembley, Roberto Mancini returned to talk about the emotions experienced thanks to the conquest of Euro 2020 as the coach of the national team:
“We are all very happy because we have created something extraordinary. Italy will remain in the history books, at the top for my players. “I feel good as a European champion, it is a good feeling and I am absolutely happy, especially for all Italians living in Italy and in the world.”
Mancio focused on last Monday’s celebrations, when the Azzurri returned to Rome as heroes: “We celebrated, but everything happened very quickly. It all passed in front of me like in a movie. We had not prepared anything, but we were welcomed by so many people on the streets of Rome…
It was simply beautiful, an extraordinary moment that continues even now. All this belongs to my sons, they had a right to want to live it. Am I a beast for the holidays? No, I have never been.
But it was really good to celebrate, especially for the Italians. “I think people will continue to do it all summer and that’s nice.” Then he returned to London evening and the feelings at the moment of the penalty expected by Donnarumma against Saka:
“I was very excited at that moment and of course I had tears. It was an exhausting 50 days full of emotions. That’s why I cried. Because at that moment all the tension was gone. “Such a big victory makes you even more exciting.”
