Fans love Italy’s corner routine in Euro 2024 win

Italy commenced their defence of the European Championship with a 2-1 win over Albania and there was much focus on Alessandro Bastoni’s goal.

Albania had taken a shock lead after just 23 seconds, with Nedim Bejrami netting the fastest ever goal in a Euros game.

However, Italy responded in the eleventh minute as a cleverly-worked corner routine culminated in Bastoni equalising with a header.

Then in the 16th minute Nicolo Barella put Italy 2-1 in front.  

However, many fans were left reflecting on where they recognised the corner routine from for Bastoni’s goal.

Fans were quick to point out that the corner routine was similar to one that is often used in popular video game EAFC (previously known as FIFA).

Italy took a short corner, with a cross subsequently being sent into the box before Bastoni headed in.
