That mentioned detail has been highlighted by one of the most recognized media: the Gazzetta dello Sport. The sports newspaper dedicated an article to Bicolor’s advance to the playoffs, but focused on the role played by the ‘Bambino de los Andes’: scorer of the first goal in the 2-0 victory over Paraguay.

“There is still an Italian who dreams of the World Cup and it is Gianluca Lapadula”says the quoted newspaper. The reference is clear: the ‘Nazionale’ said goodbye to that option last week against North Macedonia during the European playoffs. Not only that, the transalpine accumulated two absences in the World Cup (he did not attend Russia 2018 either).

There was also a space for the emotional celebration of ‘Il Peruviano’ (he sang the emotional ‘Contigo Perú’) and he was moved by the atmosphere in the capital. “A very special evening, also finished off with a stick and with tears after the end of the match, which further consolidated the myth of Lapagol in the hearts of the Peruvian fans”indicate in Italy.

To close, a forceful paragraph about the different luck that ‘9’ had with the Azzurra and the Blanquirroja: “And above all something that Lapadula, unlike the Italian players, can boast about. And it is obvious that, after the elimination of Italy, many Peruvians on social networks make fun of the Azzurri for the lack of confidence in the one who later became the bomber of the South American team”.
