Del Piero: “It’s easier to focus when the stadium is against you”


Former Azzurri and Juventus forward Alessandro Del Piero believes having the crowd against them could help Italy in their EURO 2024 opener against Albania.  Before the match, on the sidelines, Del Piero shared their thoughts live on Sky Sport 24 about the much-anticipated game:

“Having the opponents against you has both positive and negative aspects, depending on how you look at it.

“The positive side is that when everything around you is against you, it becomes easier to concentrate. The downside is that the support from the crowd gives you a lot emotionally. You have to fight against everything and everyone.

“This stadium brings back memories of great victories for us. To reach the top, you have to win these kinds of matches. The support from our fans is exactly the same as it was in 2006, and there are signs that we can do well.”
