The first goal of the tournament is also the best of the entire competition. Insigne and Chiesa far from the podium, but there is a lot of Serie A
Those who saw it live, or a few hours later on the mobile phone, immediately realized that they were faced with something unrepeatable. The fact is that it was only the first day of a European that promised show: no one wanted to get too out of balance. In the end, however, Uefa really crowned Patrik Schick’s goal from midfield in the Czech Republic-Scotland the best of the tournament. Off the podium, however, the networks of Insigne and Chiesa.
The ball rolls over halfway, a look at the goalkeeper, a couple of steps to take aim and then a left-handed lob that goes into the goal along with Marshall, the Scotland goalkeeper. A fantastic goal, the best of the European Championships according to Uefa’s technical observers, a group which also includes Esteban Cambiasso, Fabio Capello and Robbie Keane. It was the starter of a competition played at a high level by Schick, who after the disappointment at Roma has rebuilt a career in Germany between Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen. He finished with 5 goals in as many games: the same as Ronaldo, one more than Lukaku (included in the top 11 of Uefa) and Harry Kane.
And the Italians?
There are two in the top ten chosen by UEFA, even if both are off the podium. The goal of Lorenzo Insigne, fourth, against Belgium in the quarter-finals and that of Federico Chiesa in the semifinal against Spain, tenth in the standings. Serie A is also represented by Cristiano Ronaldo, seventh, thanks to the goal in the groups against Hungary, then by Morata (in the same match as Chiesa), eighth, and by Damsgaard, ninth after the goal in the semifinal with England, the first on a free kick from the European Championship. In second place is Pogba (France) for the shot from outside the box against Switzerland; to third Luka Modrić (Croatia), who against Scotland gave a jewel from the outside. Finally Kevin De Bruyne, fifth, for the goal in Denmark – Belgium and Andriy Yarmolenko for the one in the Netherlands-Ukraine.
