Italy winger Lorenzo Insigne was disappointed with his miss as Italy’s new era started with a 2-0 friendly defeat to Argentina.
Italy were defeated 2-0 thanks to goals from Ever Banega and Manuel Lanzini at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.
Insigne spoke with Rai Sport after the game and was disappointed with the result as he felt that the Azzurri played well.
“It’s a shame we didn’t score a goal and I am disappointed, as we had played well and could’ve avoided conceding those two goals.
“Aside from the result, we put in a good performance tonight and can begin to move forward”.
Insigne believed that Italy caused Argentina a few problems during the 90 minutes.
“I think we caused Argentina a lot of problems. If my goal or Ciro Immobile’s chance had gone in, we’d be talking about a very different game.
“We all know how the World Cup campaign ended, but if we focus only on the past, we’ll never move forward. Our duty is to work hard and improve”.
