Stefano Sensi says he was satisfied with his performance as he made his Italy debut in their 1-0 victory against the USA.

Sensi made his debut as he started and completed Italy’s 1-0 friendly win against the USA on Tuesday.

The Sassuolo midfielder stood in for Jorginho who was allowed to return to Chelsea a few days earlier.

Mancini explains how hard is to be a national team manager

The Italy boss says is very difficult being without his players for longs periods of time, because he has ideas he cannot apply to the team.

“I’m very satisfied with my performance, but above all with the performance of the team,” Sensi said after their 1-0 over the USA, via Football Italia.

“We created so many chances and the only problem was we lacked a little determination to finish off those opportunities.

“Jorginho is a great player, proving that for Italy, Napoli and Chelsea, but the only thing I can do is be ready and very happy if the CT calls me again.”
