Written by crest887fm on July 13, 2021
Italy manager Roberto Mancini said he was due to win the Euro Trophy after his side beat England on penalties to win Euro 2020 competition.
Mancini failed to win a major trophy as a player with the Azzurri, finishing third at Italia 90 and runner-up at the Under-21 European Championship in 1986.
After failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, Italy have enjoyed a remarkable turnaround under Mancini, and are unbeaten in 34 games.
The former Manchester City boss said his tears after the game were for the whole of Italy.
