Italy goalscorer Jorginho happy beating Greece

Italy goalscorer Jorginho is delighted to have booked their place at Euro 2020.

The Azzurri failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, but secured their place at Euro 2020 with last night's 2-0 victory over Greece.

“It's a fantastic result, especially considering all the horrible times we went through two years ago. We deserved this achievement and are truly happy, because we wanted it so much and we fought for it," Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, who scored from the spot, told Rai Sport.

“I trained hard on penalties, but I'm happier with the result for the team, as it's great that we won and deserved the victory.

“We're proving ourselves to be a good group of players, we're all on the same page and it's fun to work in those circumstances.

“The Olimpico crowd was excellent tonight and I am sure it'll be even more passionate next June. We'll do everything to entertain the supporters, as it's wonderful to play in that atmosphere."
