THE PROTAGONISTS-

Leandro Mosca (Italy) – « We had fun today, we were playing against the home team in a warm atmosphere. It was a good match and we took home the three points, we are growing, technically and mentally. We have a different approach after mistakes for sure, we are becoming more and more united. Today the key was the joke, having put them in difficulty gave us a big hand. In a few hours we are immediately on the pitch with Argentina, tomorrow we are still there, look at us “.

Francesco Recine (Italy) – « In my opinion we played better in some moments than in the match against Poland, it was not easy today with this atmosphere against the hosts. We stayed focused even when we had a major advantage. With France we were good at not throwing ourselves down after the defeat, many were in the first official match, if we were to play again with France I don’t know if it would go as it went the other day. Now immediately at rest, Argentina is here in a few hours ».
