The movement went out him well to the Italian, since the pair sudamericana found a lot of spaces by this side in front of the ausenia of Kyle Walker. However, the diagram desconectó to Jude Bellingham in the medullary, since the English remained isolated by the centre while Valderde did the times of right extreme.
