says that Italy will make Leonardo Spinazzola happy with their performance.

Federico Chiesa and his father are the only father and son in history to score in Euro 2020, and he says that he is proud to have such a family.

“It was a fantastic feeling to carry my family name so high in European and world football,”

Chiesa told Sky Sport Italia

. “I’m proud to be the son of my father and my mother.

“This makes me realize how great my father was. I talked to him in the evening, he was very happy for the goal, but above all that we qualified.

“Unfortunately, he didn’t manage to go beyond the last 16 even in the World Cup with the national team. He was really happy.”

And about Mancini’s part in Italy’s performance he added:

“We played a great game, but this is thanks to the work the coach has done in the last two years, the idea of football he brought, the enthusiasm. Now the results are coming,

“He is the strength of our group. We all love each other; the coach brought this great enthusiasm. We have to give him credit, he brought the national team back to great levels.

“We are almost like brothers. He told us to take one step at a time.”

Chiesa insists that he is sorry for what happened to Spinazzola and wants to give him something to make him happy after the bad injury that he has been dealing with.

“I’m very sorry for Spina,”

Chiesa said

. “He was having a great Euros. A fundamental player for us. We are really like brothers and losing one is not nice, in a metaphorical sense.

“I wish him the best, he’s a great player and we will miss him in these matches. Now, he must think about recovering. We will try to bring him something great to give him great joy.”
