Luciano Spalletti

Luciano Spalletti has spoken about triumph in Euro 2024 after Italy's victory over Albania. The Italian coach has said that his players must adhere to the style of play.

"Since I started working as a coach, I have been told that it is important to win. No, what matters is that we play well. In order for us to try to win at Euro 2024, we have to play good football. We were a little deep in the first half and that allowed Albania to use their physicality. We must have faith in our style, this is the way forward", said Spalletti.

The best player of the match, Federico Chiesa, said that "Albania was a strong opponent.

"It has quantity and quality. In the future we must learn to close the game when we have chances. Otherwise you will always be in danger, as we were in the last minutes tonight".
