In all, they are 36 out of 140. Of the five goals in the semifinals in the 120th minute, only Kane’s does not come from the Italian championship. And also the own goals …
In addition to Roberto Mancini’s Italy, there is another Italy that is the protagonist of the European Championships. It makes you dream less than Giorgio Chiellini & associates, but keeps the value of our product high. These are the goals that Serie A felt they could “donate” to the continental review, 36 out of 140, 25.7%: the last ones by Damsgaard and Kjaer, the second in the form of an own goal, complete an exceptional picture. The five goals scored within 120 ‘in the two semi-finals bear 80% of the Italian plate: Morata and Chiesa (Juventus), Damsgaard (Sampdoria), and Kjaer (Milan, albeit in the wrong door). “Only” Harry Kane (Tottenham) flies a different flag from our Tricolore. But the Italian “dominance” began immediately, right from the group stage. So much so that Ronaldo (Juventus) is one of the two top scorers with 5 goals (together with Schick), Lukaku (Inter) has stopped at 4. And then there are 8 teams represented: Inter, Juventus, Atalanta, Sassuolo, Naples, Lazio, Sampdoria and Turin. A transversal cut, not only geographic, but also merit-based according to the latest ranking.
Tricolor also around Europe
An abundant goal out of four (and missing only one match at the end the figure can be said to be almost definitive) comes from Serie A. And also in the curious statistics relating to the own goals (absolute record for the history of the European Championship with 11) we are ahead. In all, four bear the unlucky signature of players from our league: Kjaer (Milan), Demiral and Szczesny (Juventus), Kucka (Parma). One in three abundant, a good 36%. Serie A, both thanks to the national team and thanks to foreigners, was the real star of this European championship. He left behind the other major leagues around the continent. Demonstration of the thickness of our championship. On the sidelines, just to make a clarification: the 36 goals baptized Italian also include that of Goran Pandev, registered with Genoa until June 30 and now released.
