The men of Mr. D’Amore, a difference from other teams, have in fact managed to get a very important point in the Green Pearl proving to have matured a lot from the mental aspect and in the awareness of their means.
The Victor San Marino, therefore, can really play it openly with everyone without fear to make his first participation in the Italian championship of Excellence magical and manage to win not only the love and trust of the citizens of the Republic of San Marino but also the respect and admiration of opposing clubs, journalists and professionals.
Gianni D’Amore, coach of Victor San Marino, declares: “The draw between us and Fya Riccione is a fair result. The game could have gone differently if we had managed to keep the advantage for a few more minutes, but in the end there can be a 1-1 draw. The team had an excellent attitude in Riccione, the same as we have seen on other occasions but we have not always managed to obtain a positive result. Against Fya Riccione we conceded a goal that could have put us in serious difficulty, but the team believed in other games a little more and played well until the end. Boccioletti and captain Barone are important for us, but Greco and Albonetti were able to replace them in a great way, playing together with their teammates an excellent match against the top of the class. We must continue to play with this attitude also in matches and to grow under the technical-tactical training in training ”.
Leonardo Albonetti, Victor San Marino midfielder, says: “I consider the goal scored against Fya Riccione less beautiful than the one scored against Diegaro, but both were important for the whole team. It was very nice to be able to come back from injury and find the way to goal in the first useful match, but at the same time I am also sorry for Captain Barone’s injury just a few minutes into the match. I am very happy with our performance in Riccione, even if the final 1-1 leaves us a bit of a bitter taste because we could even win the three against group leaders Emilia Romagna if only we could defend the 1-0. until the final triple whistle. But, after all, there is no need to complain: we have won an important point against a very strong team managing to throw our hearts over the obstacle and this makes us proud of what we have done at ‘Nicoletti’ and even more motivated in view of the challenges. We are all happy also because we have managed to reach a certain type of mentality and now we can only carry it forward ”.
