Stephan El Shaarawy scored the fifth goal in Italy’s 5-2 victory over Northern Macedonia in Euro 2024 qualifying. Speaking in the mixed zone after the win, the Roma striker praised the team spirit and, above all, the reaction of his team-mates to the goals scored by their opponents.
“Today, it was important to react to the two goals we conceded. If you play a proactive game, you can concede something more. The most important thing was the reaction, because we reacted well. The spirit of the first half, the way we approached the game, that’s in our character. After conceding two goals, we didn’t concede,” Stephan El Shaarawy told Rai Sport.
