Silipo: “Use beaten with head and heart”
"Finally we saw the Setterosa - is the comment of the technical commissioner, Charles Silipo - the one I'm proud to drive. A performance of head, heart and character was needed to beat the United States. We succeeded. This success must give us confidence and awareness. However, the world championship does not end here, just as it did not end after the defeat with the Greece when I already heard the bells for the deceased. When you put the will to suffer everything becomes easier. We knew it was a game to be played above all in defense and that the more we were attached to the USA the more the chances of winning would increase. Conceding just seven goals against them is a lot of stuff. Now - the conclusion - everything can be achieved if we remain humble, with our feet on the ground, if we continue to suffer and believe in our game".
