Spalletti: "Tensions got to us"

Spalletti: "Tensions got to us"

Luciano Spalletti speaks after the game to Sky Sport.

“We were not able to maintain tranquility because everything that was still possible. We got nervous, gave away the ball too many times and tactically things were disorganized. As tension and nervousness grow, it makes us to lose focus of the game and also ball management. The psychological weight of this game was everything. We had to keep the game balance but we became too frantic when we went behind. This is a huge disappointment for everyone, including the fans. I would have liked to see all Italian teams in the next round.”
