Jorginho Completed 70 Out Of 71 Attempted Passes In Midfield Masterclass Vs Belgium
| Last updated
Nico Barella and Lorenzo Insigne were both on target in the first half, with Romelu Lukaku's penalty only reducing the deficit at the Allianz Arena.
But don't sleep on Jorginho and the part he played in a monumental Azzurri victory. The Chelsea midfielder has had to deal with a lot of criticism in recent years but he was sensational in Munich.
Staggeringly, the 29-year-old only misplaced ONE pass during the course of the 90 minutes. He attempted 71 passes in total, with 70 completed - giving him an absurd 99% pass accuracy against the No.1 ranked team in the world.
In the first half, every single one of the 31 passes he played found a team - with the single stray one coming in the second half.
Sitting in midfield alongside Marco Verratti, the former Napoli man also won possession back nine times for his team.
Plenty have disrespected him but he's been a vital component for this all-conquering Italy side and quite rightly received praise for another superb outing:
Tipped to win the Ballon d'Or by teammate Insigne, Jorginho is now two wins away from adding a European Championship winners medal to the coveted Champions League souvenir he collected with Chelsea last month.
Italy play Spain next in a massive semi-final at Wembley on Tuesday, with Jorginho coming up against his club captain Cesar Azpilicueta.
