After a painful start, Ramondino’s team gained confidence minute by minute and produced a super second half, top-12, thanks to the energy of the North Americans, who are still unbeaten in the competition. overcame the half of the tournament, thus bringing home their second win at the GLOBL JAM after the win against the USA.

So coach Ramondino: “The team played at a high level. Unity, in terms of approach. Many players have taken the responsibility a step further. Leadership, focus, sharing clearly demonstrated success”.

These were the words of Guglielmo Caruso, top scorer with 14 points: “We produced a performance with character. It’s always difficult to bounce back from a loss like the one against Brazil in the 2nd match. We grew in the second half, listened to the staff’s signs, had a proactive approach and a bit more from a technical and tactical point of view, which made the difference in the end. We won as a team.

Lorenzo Insigne and Domenico Criscito, recently in Toronto for a new adventure in Mater League Soccer, cheer on the Azzurri tonight at the Mattami Athletic Center.

Canada gets off to a strong start and, with Currier and Bediak, going 17-5 midway through the opening quarter. Despite several headaches under the boards, Italy had the right attitude and carefully closed the gap with Caruso and Okek before Palumbo’s triple closed the fourth 16-23.
The Azzurri continue to push, finding -4 with Sarto (23-27). However, the North Americans have the centimeters to withstand a blow and really dominate in rebounds, and in the painting they see a double-digit advantage 5′ from returning to the locker room. Ramondino’s team deserved to hang on to the game, adjusting back to -6 on a tear midway through the match (32-38).
Back on the pitch in the second half, the Azzurro are still smarting. Always starting from a low defense for the Canadians, Italy gains confidence in attack, stealing possessions and shooting from the bow first with Zambini (42-42) and then with Udom (47-45). It’s the expected shock that opens up the Azzurri and scares the North Americans, now rushing from long range and on the wall under the basket. He made it a 21-11 leg, playing with Italy’s focus and fury, and it gave Ramondino’s team a 4-point lead with 10 minutes left to play (53-49).
Italy was not satisfied. Instead, he makes a game with all his players and they all contribute to increase the gap (72-60), which ensures the result with 2 minutes from the end. There is always a gap of 9 or more points for first place in the group, but Miller’s third makes the game 72-79.
