We fought hard: Lorenzo Insigne

Italy’s goalscorer against Bosnia and Herzegovina believes the game was very difficult, but he’s happy to get the three points.

After defeating Bosnia and Herzegovina 2-1 today, Italy sits at the top of Group J in the EURO 2020 Qualifiers with a perfect run and 12 points.

The team had a very difficult time defeating their rivals, as only an 86th-minute goal by Marco Verratti was able to give them the three points.

Which is why footballer Lorenzo Insigne believes this was not a good match, but he was still happy for the win.

“It wasn’t our best performance, but we fought hard, we worked as a team and showed that we have the refusal to give up in our DNA,” Insigne was quoted by Football Italia.

“That can take us far.”

“It’s a big responsibility to wear the number 10 jersey for Italy, but I’m trying to turn that into enthusiasm and work with my teammates to make it go well,” he added.

“Bosnia had taken the lead, but this team wants to win every game.”

Jesus Vallejo says Italy was dirty

The U21 Spain national team captain believes the Italians won because they were very dirty, and didn't understand the referee not sending off one of his rivals.

He continued: “We achieved it, we go into the summer break with these three points and a wonderful sensation.”

“I am at the disposal of the coach, who is putting his faith in me.”

“I try to help the team, scored two goals in two games, and now can’t wait for a vacation, because in a month it all starts again,” Insigne concluded.
