Italy lost to Spain in today's UEFA Nations League semi final. Luis Enrique's side ended Roberto Mancini's unbeaten run, though they still hold the record for the longest international unbeaten run in all competitions. Italy were quite unfortunate in today's match, they got down to ten men in the first half and Ferran Torres punished them and got Spain to the next stage of the competition.
Following today's match up, fans came out to say few things about Chelsea's Jorginho, these things were the absolute truth. Jorginho wasn't at his best today but he can agree that he didn't have a worst performance.
This fan made it known that Jorginho needs a rest, he has played in back to back games for Chelsea in all competitions this season. He played in last international break and still represented the Italian national team today. The midfielder surely needs a break. It's about time he gets the rest that he deserves.
Roberto Mancini have players who will take Jorginho's place in the international break while he rests. He'll be an essential feature for Thomas Tuchel side right after the international break. The Jorginho we are seeing in recent matches is a bit different from the one we saw towards the end of last season and in the EUROS.
Many claim Jorginho doesn't deserve to be a ballon d'or contender after his performance against Spain today. It's almost impossible to put on a show on back to back matches, it wasn't his day and besides Spain were the better team in every way. Italy played more of counter attacking today, Jorginho found it difficult to cope with his pace. Chelsea attacking style was different from that of Italys.
Despite his performance today, Jorginho is still a ballon d'or contender and has what it takes to win the ballon d'or award next month.
