But in the round of 16 against Switzerland, the Italians had no chance and lost 2-0. It was a real failure.

Naturally, there was a big reaction in the football-mad country. Former national team player Antonio Cassano, 41, was not happy with what he saw of his country's performance.

– We suck. That's the reality and the facts. We sucked during the European Commission. We showed no character, no quality, no ideas. We had no balls, nothing, he says on the FIFA El Futbol podcast, according to the Italian The Fat Quotidiano.

– I told him that the national team was bad and that it was difficult to break, but I always supported him. He is a genius. People in Italy speculate a lot, but the truth is that we have a genius on the bench, reveals the former striker, quoted by a Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.
