Capello Blames Italy’s Euro 2024 Exit To Lack Of Organization

Former AC Milan coach Fabio Capello has described Italy’s exit from the ongoing Euro 2024 as embarrassing.

Recall that the reigning champions were eliminated by Switzerland in the Round of 16 after losing 2-0.

However, reacting to the game, Capello stated that Italy’s lack of organisation and addition of quality players let them down at the competition.

“I was embarrassed, a bit like when I returned from the 1974 World Cup as a footballer. I had the feeling that against Spain the coach was not thinking like a national team coach, but like a club coach.

“Switzerland has great organisation and quality in the central axis: Sommer in goal, Akanji in defence, the extraordinary Xhaka in midfield and the generous Embolo in attack.

“And above all, compared to us, Switzerland seemed to me to be a team, in the true sense of the word: all ready to sacrifice, 10 men defend and at least six men attack.”

    Capello my man, e choke.
    Italy playing like post Afcon Nigeria. Defensively naive. Wasteful in the final third.
