Euro 2024: We Deserve To Go Home  –Italy Midfielder

Italy midfielder Bryan Cristante has said the Azzuris deserve to go home following their poor showing against Switzerland in Saturday’s Euro 2024 round of 16 Clash.

Goals in each half from Remo Freuler and Ruben Vargas secured the deserved win for the Swiss.

Italy made numerous changes from the side that drew 1-1 with Croatia at the last minute, including Cristante coming into the midfield, but the same problems remained.

“There’s not much we can save from this performance, we were dominated physically and in terms of organisation,” Cristante told Sky Sport Italia.

“It is too early to come to conclusions, we deservedly are sent home. Now it’s time we clear our heads and start again from next season with a different level of determination and energy.

“When you see there’s such a difference in organisation and playing style, it really saps the mental energy from you as well. As I said, we deserve to go home.

“The intention was very different, but when you are not able to do things against a team that moves the ball so well, it is frustrating. We have to clear our heads and begin again.”

When asked if there Was something badly wrong in the fitness training at club or international level to leave the players so visibly drained, he replied:“I don’t know, it’s hard to explain when there’s such a big difference.”
