It ended well. We are at Euros, which is the result we wanted, but now we must not commit the errors of the past, Sacchi said.
We must not think we are phenomenons otherwise well fall to the ground again. They gave their all and given the circumstances this is enough for me. I would add that if we had lost, this group of players and this coach would not have been blamed. Luciano Spalleti has just arrived and we must let him work. He also needs to know the environment and the footballers.
This qualification must be the starting point. If we want to become leaders, we need to change many things and Im not talking about tactics. We are behind the other main national teams in Europe. Italy only have one federal centre, France has 16 and even Switzerland beats us with three.
The Italian team lost out on top spot in the qualifiers to England who finished with an impressive 20 points in eight matches.
Italy are the current defending champions. They won the last edition of the tournament (Euro 2020).
They also won the Euros in 1968 when they hosted the tournament.
The team failed to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
