“The boys are crying, it’s clear that this is a lost world title, but in 2024 it won’t be this match that will be remembered, but the Olympic competitions. So let’s take this medal, the team is there to achieve something important at the Olympics.” Settebello coach Sandro Campagna said this at the end of the world final lost in Doha. “We made a mistake in the final, but I can’t blame the boys for anything, they had a great final and an amazing World Cup. We grew during the tournament, the season, the World Cup – Campagna said again to Rai Sport – We were able to suffer even today, perhaps we lacked something in quality, legs. Nothing to say, the regret of having lost by four seconds remains.”
