Lazio winger Felipe Anderson highlighted the importance of yesterday’s tough 3-3 draw against Empoli.
Speaking in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Lazio Style Radio (via LazioNews24) after the game yesterday, the 28-year-old Brazilian forward first commented on the result yesterday afternoon.
We’re so sorry for the first few minutes. It’s not easy to come back, because you’re never calm.
That hurt us, but we didn’t give up and we fought. We showed we are a team.
The Lazio winger touched on the moment one of his shots bounced off the crossbar.
I wanted to shoot before, but I tried to adjust the ball as there was an opponent.
It’s a shame because it would have been an important goal at that moment.
We have to give everything for the team, grow and give our best. Every game in Serie A is difficult, like the one against Inter.
We have to go there to play for it, also because they’re in great form.
The 28-year-old Brazilian spoke about if the foul on Mattia Zaccagni should have been a penalty.
I didn’t see the incident again but it looked like a foul to me.
Otherwise I don’t think he would have fallen like that.
Finally, Felipe Anderson discussed the impact of dropping two points as a result of the draw with Empoli.
We’re slowly growing. We’re working every day now, but then we have to get the points because they matter.
Losing two points like this hurts in the league table. The result will come, because we have quality and we’re showing it.
The 28-year-old Felipe Anderson, who is contracted to Lazio until 2025, has made 26 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1895 minutes. In that time, he has scored four goals and provided five assists.
The Biancocelesti’s next game is away to Simone Inzaghi’s Inter on Sunday evening. The Roman club won the first meeting this season 3-1 at home.
