Italy coach gets treatment from medic on bench after picking up facial injury during dramatic Belgium win at Euro 2020

ONE of Italy's coaches needed medical treatment on the bench during their dramatic win over Belgium last night.

A member of Roberto Mancini's backroom staff managed to hurt his face at the Allianz Arena in Munich.

And he was spotted sat down wearing his Giorgio Armani suit in the dugout being tended to with the doctor appearing to press something against his left temple.

Ironically, when the coach received attention in the 78th minute, Italy star Leonardo Spinazzola was also down injured.

The exciting left-back, one of the standout performers for the Azzurri in this tournament, tore his Achilles tendon in a devastating blow for him and the team.

Roma's Spinazzola was in tears as he lay on the pitch in agony before being stretchered off.

It appears his Euros tournament is over.

But on a lighter note, Ciro Immobile made a heroic recovery earlier on in the quarter-final clash.

He went down after slight contact with Jan Vertonghen in the Belgium penalty box and was rolling around in apparent agony.

That was until team-mate Nicolo Barella blasted in and Immobile jumped up to join in the celebrations.


Lorenzo Insigne added to Barella's opener on 44 minutes before Romelu Lukaku pulled one back from the spot on the stroke of half-time.

But despite numerous chances for Roberto Martinez's side, the Italians held on for a 2-1 win to set up a semi-final date with Spain in a repeat of the 2012 final.
