Football, Italy defeated by England. The support of the Neapolitan public was not enough to push the national team past the English obstacle. Goals from Rice and Kane in the first half, Retegui’s blitz in the second half and the final forcing. But that’s not all, the road to the 2024 European Championship started badly. Now the three points are needed, which should be scored in Malta on Sunday. An already decisive game for the fate of the Azzurri. Who paid for a truly tragic first half against England that didn’t spread thanks to Donnarumma’s saves and inaccuracy in front of goal. Had they made five, there would have been nothing to say. Fortunately, Italy changed their face in the second half. Go to attack the enemy stronghold and find the web with newcomer Retegui. But the heart wasn’t enough to break even.
