PSG goalkeeper Donnarumma proud as Italy defeat Hungary

PSG goalkeeper Gigio Donnarumma was proud after Italy's Nations League victory in Hungary.

Giacomo Raspadori and Federico Dimarco secured the 2-0 Italy win at the Puskas Arena.

“We needed this to bring back a bit of enthusiasm, even if nothing can heal the open wound that is missing the World Cup," Donnarumma told RAI Sport.

“It was important to reboot, for all of Italy and for those who believed in us. We started the group well with two victories, now reach the Final Four and will try to win the whole thing.

“My method doesn't change. Sometimes it can be very difficult for us goalkeepers to recover from mistakes, but we must remain concentrated, work hard and understand what went wrong, trying not to do it again.

“When there's so much at stake, I try to relax in the locker room and joke around, to take the pressure off. Then when I step onto the pitch, my mind is totally on the game.

“Unfortunately, mistakes can still happen, I worked on it and I know that I still need to work on things like when to play the ball and when to clear it."
