Italy European champion of Subbuteo: the Neapolitan Battista more decisive than the Georgian. Farewell to the legendary Lodetti, may today’s midfielders honor him on the pitch
We missed the last two World Cups, we have some problems with our feet, but no one can beat us with our hands. Last weekend, in Gibraltar, we became European champions of Subbuteo, the game at your fingertips, by beating Belgium in the final. Luca Battista’s golden goal has gone viral on social media. A long moment of waiting, an infinite suspension, like before Fabio Grosso’s penalty in Berlin 2006, then Luca’s index finger dug into the ball which soared and ended up in the net of an imaginary Courtois. Triumph.
