Bonucci does not tremble and the cursed door becomes his ally

ROME. Same stadium and same door, but a whole different kind of final. “If there was Bonucci” is already a trend topic on social networks after seeing the black and white captain score a double from a penalty, in that Olimpico in Rome that eight nights before had experienced the blue psychodrama due to the mistake from Jorginho’s spot against Switzerland. And to think that the Juventus defender had also tried to kick that ball that could immediately give Italy the World Cup pass, without however being able to convince his teammate to take a step back. «A week ago the penalty taker was Jorginho and it was right that he shot it – says Bonucci -, but if they had asked me I would have shot it without any kind of problem. Let’s say I’ll be there for the next ones too … Now we have to think about improving day by day to get to March in the best way ».

That Jorginho mistake

The thought is valid for the national team, but also for this Juve in the phase of reconstruction and relaunch. The philosophy of taking one step at a time is increasingly combined with the spirit of the “short nose”, given how the bianconeri have returned to lock the goal – conceding very little to the opponents – and to score with the right cynicism. And in the absence of prolific forwards, it’s up to the defenders to score the goals too. With a penalty in time, Bonucci was a formidable shooter and took away the whim of his first career double, as well as becoming the most prolific defender in Serie A in the last decade. With 26 goals scored, he surpasses the Atalantino Gosens and the former Roma player Florenzi (both at 25), but against Lazio the 3 points taken after the break count above all. «It is a fundamental victory – explains the Juventus captain -: with this approach and spirit of sacrifice things change. From now on we will acquire much more determination, more nastiness and more self-confidence. We all have to do our part to get Juventus back to fight for all goals ». Now the examination of the truth, on Tuesday in London at the home of Chelsea champions of Europe, where Jorginho (who went out yesterday due to injury in the 3-0 in Leicester) is likely not to be there. The time for clarification and the new blue hierarchies can still wait, but if Bonucci was there …
