ROME – Serie A was the first to stop due to the well-known events related to coronavirus. A few weeks later, the definitive stop of the Champions League, Europa League and Formula 1 also arrived.
What is left for sports fans? What did you see on TV? How did Sky organize itself, which is the one that transmits the majority of Serie A matches, leaving Dazn with three matches in turn?
In a nostalgic way. That is, passing on the big blue enterprises of the past. So taking a look at the new programming of Sky Sport, we can find many matches of the 2006 World Cup and the 1968 European Championship.
In 2006 Italy, back from the Calciopoli scandal, was able to win the fourth World Cup in its history. The blues are second only to Brazil in this special classification.
The Azzurri won against all odds, beating the hosts of Germany in the semifinals, with magical goals by Grosso and Del Piero, and winning in the final against the favorite France after an exciting penalty shootout lottery.
Thanks to his extraordinary performances in the 2006 World Cup, Fabio Cannavaro, in the photo above left, won the only Golden Ball of his prestigious career.
But even the 1968 feat was no different. In that year the blues won the only European football championship in their history. The competition was played in three Italian cities: Rome, Naples and Florence.
Italy won against Yugoslavia by two to zero in the replay match after the first challenge ended on the result of one by one. The two goals that gave the cup to the Azzurri were signed by Riva and Anastasi.
