Milito: "Thinking about the Bernabeu still gives me chills. Each passing year..."
Today is the day of Spain versus Italy which will be played at the Bernabeu, one that gives sweet memories to Diego Milito.
“Every time I think of the Bernabeu, I don’t think about my two goals, but the first thought that comes to my mind is the shivering on the skin and I still feel that today. That night is still not over because I don’t want it to end. It was the night I dreamed as a child, especially in a legendary stadium like this one. And each passing year makes me more aware of what we did and how hard it was.
“Italy and Spain? Don’t ask me for a prediction. This is the game of family for me. My dad’s grandparents had Italian origins while my mother’s grandfather was born in Spain, near Pamplona. They always play beautiful matches and this time, it will be the same.”
