Many were left very impressed by his calmness.
Jorginho was the toast of the Chelsea fan base last night after scoring the winning penalty to send Italy through to the Euro 2020 final, where they will face either Denmark or England.
The 29-year-old scored the final, and decisive penalty to seal a 4-2 penalty shootout win over Spain at Wembley on Tuesday.
It was calmness personified, stone cold, from the Chelsea and Italy midfielder. When the pressure was on, he stepped up and in a ‘hop, skip, and a jump’ style he passed it into the corner to send the Azzurri into jubilation at Wembley.
Chelsea fans were ecstatic to see their midfielder Jorginho send Italy through to the Euro 2020 final.
The 29-year-old’s masterclass came after comments from his former manager Maurizio Sarri, who backed the Italian regista to go and win the 2021 Ballon d’Or.
“If he wins the European Championship, he is a candidate for the Ballon d’Or,” Sarri told SportItalia. “He’s a refined player and that’s why everyone doesn’t understand him.
“He makes everything seem easy, it’s his greatness. When I went to Chelsea, we managed to snatch him from Manchester City.
“At first it was hard to understand him, the fans, the journalist, now I see that he is appreciated. He was also the captain of Chelsea.”
As explained by the football.london, these comments came before the semi-final, and with Jorginho proving Sarri right with his overall great performance once again, Blues fans were quick to jump on the same hype as the ex-Chelsea manager had done.
Jorginho left a great impression once again, another superb display from the Chelsea star, and his penalty also caught the eye of his club teammates.
What was said?
Pulisic reacted and wrote on his Instagram story: “Nice and calm papai. Great tournament from both teams.”
Abraham also weighed in on his Blues teammates and had no doubts that he would finish the tie at Wembley. He said: “Of course he scoressss!”
