Zaccagni’s Last Minute Equaliser Saves Italy’s Euro Hopes

Zaccagni's Last Minute Equaliser Saves Italy's Euro Hopes
Jun 25 2024 Share

Italy really tested everyone’s heart today, waiting until the very end for Mattia Zaccagni to score the equalizer in the 90+7th minute. This crucial goal secured the much-needed points for Italy to advance through the group stages and into the round of 16.

Croatian veteran and former Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric seemed to have other plans for Italy. He had an eventful evening, first missing a penalty that was saved by Italian giant Donnarumma, and then just one minute later, scoring in the 55th minute to put Italy behind by one goal. With this goal, Modric became the oldest player to ever score in the UEFA European Championship finals.

Malta concluded their participation in the World Aquatics U-16 Championship with a triumphant 11-8 victory over Israel, showcasing an impressive comeback.

Known for their slow starts, as seen in previous matches against South Africa and Turkey, Malta fell behind 7-4 in the penultimate session. However, their resilience and fighting spirit shone through as they rallied to win the game.

This match tested the character of the young Maltese team, demonstrating their ability to overcome a poor start and finish strongly. Under the leadership of Karl Izzo, the ASA is committed to nurturing grassroots talent, and the team’s performance indicates a promising future for Maltese water polo.

Malta began shakily, conceding two early goals but equalized through Sam Engerer and Philip Tabone. Israel then pulled ahead 4-2, maintaining their lead thanks to four goals from Yuval Gal On. Despite being down 6-4 at halftime, Malta’s determination never wavered.

Goals from Max Lanzon and Miguel Cassar narrowed the gap, and Lanzon eventually tied the game 8-8 with a top-corner bounce shot.

In the final session, Sean Mifsud scored twice to give Malta their first lead, and Shailon Cutajar Casha secured the victory with his third goal, capping off a man-of-the-match performance.
