Ciro Immobile: “Our First Half was Completely Unacceptable”

Ciro Immobile scored twice from the penalty spot this afternoon to help Lazio fight back to a 3-3 draw with Atalanta. Speaking to the press after the game, Immobile said:

Does this draw count as a victory? Yes, we are happy for the second half and the reaction, but the first half was unacceptable: a totally wrong approach, we felt sorry for it! We must always play like in the second half. Collecting three goals gives you a spark…

Reaction in the locker room? A few words, little noise, we looked into each other’s eyes. There was no need to lower the head, but to raise it. In the second half we entered the field more motivated and stronger. The coach is good at keeping us quiet without raising his voice.’
