Italy, Belgium is worth the baccalaureate. CR7, a year of goals but… The comment after the elimination of Portugal from Euro 2020
(by Sandro Dall’Agnol) – Italy-Belgium will therefore bethe quarter-final of the European Championships that will see us beat on Friday evening at the Allianz Arena in Munich. The eighth most awaited at the top of the scoreboard rewards Roberto Martinez’s men, dethroning the defending champions in advance.
Portugal ran aground in Cristiano Ronaldo’s evening without rings , but above all in the mistakes of Diogo Jota, net of that pinch of bad luck on the occasion of the pole caught by Guerreiro. For CR7 the umpteenth disappointment of a season that saw him score once again in bursts, but without the reward of a “heavy” trophy to be lifted to the sky.
Les Diables Rouges overcome the first obstacle of a process that promises to be terrible, with the Azzurri next and last step on the way to Wembley. A challenge that for Chiellini and his teammates has all the air of a final exams, after a round passed in fluency and the unsuspected efforts against Austria.
