Alessio Romagnoli did not feel nervous on his senior Italy debut, holding Spain to a 1-1 draw.

The Milan centre-back was also playing in an unusual tactical system for his usual habits.

“We had a good game, but in the first half could’ve done much better. I was ok with three at the back, because as long as I stay concentrated and work hard, I can do it,” he told Rai Sport.

“We had a good game, but in the first half could’ve done much better. I was ok with three at the back, because as long as I stay concentrated and work hard, I can do it,” he told Rai Sport.

“Our plan was to win, but you know Spain always keep a lot of possession and that’s something to deal with.

“I felt a little tense at the start, but I am not someone who tends to get nervous.”

Even Azzurri legend Gigi Buffon made a mistake for the Vitolo goal.

“Of course, these things happen. It was really the fault of us in defence who allowed that gap in the middle.”
