Chiro Immobilia's dive and impersonation yesterday during Italy's victory over Belgium (1: 2) in the Euro 2020 quarterfinals aroused quite a bit of interest on the net and in the media.

The Italian striker was "caught on hot" when he allegedly faked an injury in front of Niccolò Barla's goal (which set 0-1).

Immobilia tried to squeeze Pendel, lay down on the grass after contact with his Belgian opponent, but Barla managed to score and the camera caught Immobilia getting up immediately and running to celebrate - apparent proof that he was impersonating and not really suffering from pain, despite the twisting.



"I'm not even laughing at it, because it's pathetic!" Said English commentator and former actor Alan Shearer, "It's very embarrassing."

According to Shearer, "You can see him giving a look at the referee even before he falls. It's awkward and pathetic!"

English commentator Gary Lineker also scolded Barla, saying ‘he falls desperately, trying to squeeze a penalty, making a face of‘ oh I suffer from pain, I suffer, I suffer ’, then the ball comes in and he rises and shouts‘ I am fine, I am fine ’. It's an amazing recovery. "

Immobilia also became a network joke, when on Twitter he was ridiculed, called to give him an Oscar and called his recovery a "miracle".

Recovery like a miracle.

After the ridicule, Italy decided to respond. The veteran La Repubblica journalist Maurizio Crosti, who also wrote a number of sports books in Italy, published an article in a magazine in which he referred to the words of Lineker and Shearer, and of the English in general. According to him, the criticism is hypocritical, given the fact that Jürgen Klinsmann also interprets for the BBC, when the German striker was one of the greatest divers. It was further claimed that the reason for the English reaction was their fear of the strong Italy, which remained the most senior team in the tournament and the most dangerous, after the relegation of France, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. He further claims that it comes in response to the Italians' demand to move the games from Wembley to Rome or Munich, given the Corona problem that exists in England.



In conclusion Krosty teased Linicker, calling him the commentator with "the black and white hairstyle", and ended with a sting on Linicker's famous sentence ("Football is a game that lasts 90 minutes, and in the end the Germans win").

According to the Italian, "If we refer to Lineker's statement, then football is a game where 22 players chase a ball for 90 minutes, and in the end the English remain bitter because they have not won anything since 1966."
