Chelsea fans laud Jorginho for latest Euro 2020 display
Italy maintained their perfect record at Euro 2020 by thrashing Switzerland 3-0 in Rome. One man who proved impressive was Chelsea star Jorginho.
Roberto Mancini’s team have gone into the tournament as relative dark horses. They failed to qualify for the World Cup in 2018 but have been reborn of late.
Italy have now gone 11 straight games without conceding a goal and look in the mix to win the tournament.
Jorginho will have a taste for silverware. Last month he helped Chelsea claim their second success in the Champions League.
The 29-year-old played 90 minutes in the final and has proved a mainstay on the international stage too.
Jorginho now has 30 caps for his country and last night he highlighted his undoubted quality to the Italian setup.
The midfielder has made 141 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 17 goals and registering four assists.
He has often divided opinion, although there was no doubt as to how well he played for Italy last night.
The defence-minded player could lead Italy all the way to glory on current form and supporters loved his efforts last night.
He lined-up in Mancini’s engine room and kept things ticking over from a defensive midfield role.
Chelsea supporters rave about Jorginho
Since checking in from Napoli in 2018 the midfielder has been in a constant battle to prove himself.
In recent times, however, he’s really grown and is now a key part of Thomas Tuchel’s midfield.
He was a key component of the team’s Champions League success and looks a big player for the club.
Certainly he has taken the confidence from last season into Euro 2020 and Chelsea will hope he returns with a similar confidence.
After his heroics last night, Blues fans reacted on Twitter and here is what they had to say about the £110,000-a-week star.
