Maggio ‘no memory’ of Armenia goal
By Football Italia staff
Christian Maggio impressed for Italy, but explains how he felt on the
floor watching Armenia’s goal go in.
The Napoli winger, who plays as a right-back for the Azzurri, was down
injured after a nasty clash of heads with Davit Manoyan, but the
referee waved play on and Armenia equalised.
`I don’t remember much about that moment,’ confessed Maggio. `I
couldn’t follow what was happening. It was a heavy blow to the head,
but I feel better now.’
Italy went on to win 3-1 with second half goals from Daniele De Rossi
and Pablo Daniel Osvaldo adding to Andrea Pirlo’s penalty.
`In the first half we struggled, but after the break the spaces opened
up and we did well to make the most of them.
`I tried to push down the wing and we are happy, as today we managed
to put into practice some of the things we do in training.’
