Cagliari whiz Barella: Jorginho and Verratti are two phenomenons

Cagliari whiz Nicolo Barella enjoyed Italy's 3-0 rout of Greece.

Barella struck the opener for the Euro 2020 qualifier in Athens.

“I thank Gallo (Andrea Belotti) for that wonderful pass. I wanted to score more goals for Cagliari this season, but I'm happy to have saved them up for the Nazionale," he told Rai Sport.

“We keep the ball for long periods, so it's harder for the opposition to score against us. We also have defenders who know each other well and that makes us even tougher to break down.

“Jorginho and Verratti are two phenomenons. Anyone who plays with them will inevitably do well. I got a bit angry with myself because I missed the chance for a second goal."
