A great story emerged from the football world tonight, as Francesco Acerbi, who overcame a battle with cancer recently, made an appearance for the national team after being given the all-clear.
“I am happy and proud of what I’ve overcome the past few months – he said speaking on Rai Sport. I have goals I want to complete for club and country, but do not want to talk about them now. To reach them, I’ll need to work hard.”
Acerbi also commented on the stadium and Albania fans
“The victory was well deserved tonight, but the stadium seemed more red than blue, it was full of Albania fans.”
