Italy He took the consolation final by winning with a clear 2-1 to Belgium in Turin. The Blue, hostess in this final four of the League of Nations, was superior to the team that trains Roberto Martinez and thanks to the goals of Barella y Berardi They were able to offer this third place to their fans. In the final stretch of the match, after three shots at the wood, The Ketelaere he did both for the Belgians, but he was too late to perform the miracle of the comeback.
With quite a few changes they were presented in Turin both selections. Possibly, they would prefer not to be playing this match to define the third and fourth place of the League of Nations, but the UEFA boss and they had to jump to the pitch of the Juventus stadium. Courtois and Carrasco were headlines, but the De Bruyne, Jorginho, Verratti or Insigne were on the bench. It should be remembered that Eden Hazard y Romelu Lukaku they abandoned the concentration of their selection due to inconvenience.
The hymns sounded and as always Italy He started by winning, in addition to the passion of his footballers, which all the fans who were in the stands gave him. And thanks to that push the Azure started best planted on the playing rectangle guided, in large part, by a Federico Chiesa that never tires of dazzling the world with its quality. And it is that two minutes later, the Juventus winger had already kicked twice on goal.
Another of the great names of the champion of the last Eurocup I was being Berardi, who was trying to get a Courteous that solved any Italian attack. The best arrivals were for the hosts, although Belgium occasionally peeked into the area of Donnarumma with good deeds of Carrasco O Vanaken. It should be noted that the goalkeeper of PSG I would be thankful to play this game in Turin to get rid of the whistles of the Milanese.
Stretcher abre la lata
Although Italy was better, one of the most dangerous actions came with a shot from Saelemaekers who went straight to the crossbar under the watchful eye of Donnarumma. Changing area, before reaching the break, church went hand in hand before a Courteous who became gigantic and took out a saving foot to avoid both Italy and that both teams could go to rest with 0-0 in the electronic.
On the way back he couldn’t help himself Courteous to the first that Italy had. As soon as the second half started the Azure caused a corner from which a bit of Stretcher, which hit a rejection first that reached the crescent of the area. The footballer of the Inter de Milan, another of the great names that this selection has. Hard hit for the combined Roberto Martinez, who was waking up little by little until responding with another shot to the crossbar, this time from Batshuayi.
Of what could be the tie, to 2-0. Chestnuts knocked down the agitator inside the area church and the referee did not hesitate to point out the cal point. The VAR ratified its decision and Berardi he did not miss with a powerful shot that he reached Courteous, but the harshness of the shot prevented the Belgian goalkeeper from being able to stop it. The final of consolation was sentenced by the attacker of the Sassuolo.
Less than half an hour was ahead of Belgium to perform a miracle that they suffered against before France in the semifinals of this edition of the League of Nations, but it was very, very complicated. Even more so when you have a goalkeeper in front of you like Donnarumma, who took a providential hand out of Alderweireld when there were 20 minutes left until the final whistle was reached.
I tried again Alderweireld and again he answered Donnarumma with another paradón. It was impossible for the Belgians, but since there are not two without three, the ball crashed into the post again. This time it was Carrasco with a powerful and placed shot. And when it seemed that everything was decided, in 86 ′, the goal came for the Belgians. One against that started Courteous went direct to De Bruyne that a great pass was taken for The Ketelaere, who stood alone in front of the Italian goalkeeper, who he beat with a shot that sneaked into the goal through the middle of his legs. The both and those of Bob Martinez They couldn’t help but make up the result.
