Azzurri in New York, Italian-Americans party: it's a huge crowd

From Fort Lauderdale to New York, for Spalletti's national team, the refrain is always the same: the crowd. Made by Italians residing in the United States, those who identify the blue color with their country of origin. Thus, even in New York, he gave strong emotions to the Italian delegation which is preparing to close the American tour tomorrow with a friendly match against Ecuador.

The Azzurri traveled to Spring Place, an elegant Manhattan venue, where the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) met with 1,000 people for a welcome cocktail between the Italian-American community and the team. “For the FIGC and the national team,” explained Federal President Gabriele Gravina, it is a pleasure and pride to play in the United States and to be able to share special moments like this with the Italian-American community. . “You gave us both in Miami, which was exceptional in New York, we were able to see first-hand the enthusiasm and love you have for one of the most beautiful Italian symbols: the blue shirt.” Among the “good omens” there is also the presence of Fabio Cannavaro, captain of Italy, world champion in 2006, and Giorgio Chiellini, who lifted the European champion trophy again in 2021 as captain. Between June and July, this time in Germany, the Euro Championships are scheduled and, as in the United States, a “hug” is expected from those who left Italy without forgetting their origins. And that, not on a purely sporting level, is already a success.
