Italy midfielder Marco Verratti had his say after the comeback win against Macedonia last night.
“It was a real struggle and it was also my fault, because we were in control until my mistake - the Paris Saint-Germain told medias - It gave Macedonia confidence and sapped it from us for a good 10 minutes,”
“After that black-out, we again proved that we are a great side. Unfortunately an incident can change the inertia of a game and my mistake completely transformed it".
“I take responsibility, I’m happy for the final result and will try not to make the same mistakes again".
“In the first half we faced a side that was defending with seven men behind the ball, we had our chances to go 2-0 up and it wasn’t easy once we found ourselves 2-1 down, but the final result is right because we deserved to win.”
