Luca Marrone notes it is Italy’s “dream to win the European Championship,” while Alessandro Florenzi says they must learn to be patient.
The Azzurrini qualified for the 2013 European Championship thanks to a thrilling 3-2 victory in Sweden this evening, winning the play-off 4-2 on aggregate.
“We are happy at achieving this target and our dream is to win the European Championship,” Juventus midfielder Marrone told RAI Sport.
The goals were scored by Lorenzo Insigne, Florenzi and Ciro Immobile.
“My goal came from a Marrone assist and I thank him for offering me that great chance to score,” said Roma man Florenzi.
“At the start we were too hasty in attack, but after we broke the deadlock with Insigne then did well to finish it off.”
