A goal from him allowed Italy to find equal in the delicate match against Switzerland. A fundamental header in order not to lose the challenge and still be ahead - at least for the goal difference - compared to the Swiss in view of the last match of the qualifying round at Qatar 2022. We are talking about Giovanni Di Lorenzo who spoke to Rai Sport. after the 1-1 draw in the match of the night.

Di Lorenzo immediately looks ahead and thinks about the match against Northern Ireland: "We have a difficult match away from home. We have these two days to prepare it and we must absolutely take home the victory to reach qualification".

On the draw with Switzerland and his goal: "We entered a bit tight on the pitch and took too many counter-attacks. Once these problems were resolved we had a good match. Sorry for this draw but on Monday we will have a great match ". And on the goal: "Obviously I'm happy but happiness is halfway through this draw. Sorry, we'll think about Monday immediately to try and win."

A thought also to teammate Jorginho who missed the third penalty in a row with Italy: "I know but he is a great champion and our penalty taker. We will also give him a hand to pass this moment."
