Italy were eliminated by Switzerland in the last 16 of Euro 2024 on Saturday. In a poignant statement, Azzurri captain Gianluigi Donnarumma expressed words of regret and responsibility.

“You had to leave because you take responsibility for what happened,” he said, underlining the importance of acknowledging one’s mistakes. “You go under the curve when you win, but you especially go under the curve when you lose. We had to apologize to all the fans, we deserved today’s defeat.” These words reflect a deep disappointment after a result that has left its mark on Italian soccer. “It was a painful moment, we all wanted to give more, but it didn’t work out”, he added, underlining the emotional intensity felt by the Italian national team after this bitter defeat.
