Tiger Fight, October 9 The Italian national team will face Poland in the UEFA Europa League two days later. The central midfielder Verati held a press conference at the Coviciano base.
This is a special moment for everyone, not just the players, everyone in the world deserves the same attention. We are lucky to be tested every day, and we will know if something goes wrong. In such difficult times, we must continue to move forward. We must keep smiling and bring a wonderful game to the fans who cannot come to the stadium to watch the game.
Yes, I also talked about this topic with Florence. The midfield is a key position. It is not easy to make a choice, but I am very happy to have more outstanding players. For example, Locatelli played a wonderful game. This is our Italy. I Very happy, there are Sensi and Barrera, every time I see them in the national team will become stronger.
It was indeed a heavy blow, but we have come a long way. That game could have achieved different results. Bayern is very strong, but it is a positive thing to break into the Champions League final. We have been trying to make a breakthrough in the Champions League for the past eight years. This time we finally entered the final. It also makes us full of motivation for the new season and want to play again in the Champions League immediately. I hope to win the European Cup for Italy next year. This will make me forget the defeat in the Champions League final. It is my dream since childhood to represent Italy to win.
Playing that kind of high-level game will obviously give you more experience. Like I am at a peak now, I am very clear about my physical condition.
Compared to when we were eliminated by Sweden, our mentality and self-confidence have returned. It was indeed a huge blow back then. We are now rebounding. We also want to thank Coach Mancini for his efforts. From the World Cup champion to the missed World Cup match, after two years of hard work, we finally showed the demeanor of a strong team. We must continue to follow the current path, maintaining humility and courage.
Of course I am worried, just like everyone else. The number of infections is on the rise, especially in France. Each of us must be more careful. I hope things will get better in the next few weeks. This is a difficult time. Each of us must be more responsible, behave more appropriately, reduce travel and avoid gatherings. This is for the sake of our family and children.
They have strong personal ability, excellent form, and the game style is very interesting. But we will also cause them trouble. We are ready and hope to take away three points.
Being unbeaten makes us feel great. This is not a burden. On the contrary, it gives us extra motivation. We hope to continue this record.
What I enjoy most now is playing well and being able to play for a team that can compete for important goals. Just like the past eight years, I have been accompanied by champion-level players, so I have never considered leaving Paris Saint-Germain. I am very happy here, as for the future, let's talk about it later. Now Florenzi and Keane have also joined Paris. I have always liked Florenzi and I am very happy to play with him. This is a further step for Keane and can make him stronger.
