Jorginho finally admits, Switzerland Penalty Miss will “haunt me for the rest of my life”

Jorgino blames himself for Italy loss to North Macedonia; What he said about missed penalty against Switzerland.

If Jorginho had scored his penalty against Switzerland, Italy wouldn’t have played this play off that they lost in or eve would be in the world cup right away.

After the defeat to North Macedonia, Jorginho admitted that his gaffes from 12 yards against Switzerland will “haunt me for the rest of my life”.

He went further to explain that;

“It is difficult to explain what happened,” Jorginho told RAI Sport while visibly emotional, per Football Italia.

“It hurts so much. I’ll be honest, I am still incredulous. I don’t think we lacked creativity, as we always dominated matches and created so many chances. Unfortunately, we were unable to finish them off.

“We played good football, we won the European Championship last summer, but unfortunately in the last few games we made small errors and were unable to recover from them. They made the difference.”
