The semifinal between Spain and Italy left many images for the history of the European Championships. There is nothing else to do in this case than to congratulate Italy for their good game and for their success on penalties, but it is true that there were several gestures from Chiellini in the draw for the round that did not sit well. Many of us wondered during the break prior to the pitches what was happening with Chiellini, a player who has us used to being serious and who began to joke and gesture angrily while Jordi Alba looked at him seriously.
After the end, it was clarified that there was a small discussion in the draw since, the rule is that both the part of the field where the penalties are taken, as well as the order are drawn. Italy won both draws and Jordi Alba tried to get Italy to only take one of the two privileges.
Given this, Chiellini accused Jordi Alba of a liar and joked with him with gestures that perhaps could have been saved due to the context in which they occurred. Jordi Alba was visibly upset because he had been very damaged in the draw and it seems that Chiellini wanted to put his finger on the sore, with jokes and hugs that did not sit well. It may be that it was a natural act of the Italian central defender, or something premeditated to try to deconcentrate the Barça side, but the truth is that the final hug in which the Juventus central defender squeezes Jordi Alba, taking advantage of his physical superiority, It is extremely uncomfortable and could well have saved it.
Obviously this cannot serve as an excuse, it was not even decisive in the result, but in a sport of reference for young people such as football, an example must be set, and these situations should be avoided, in which if a greater confrontation, is because Jordi endured without altering the lack of respect.
