Biglia: 'I support Italy in the Euros'

Milan midfielder Lucas Biglia will support Italy during Euro 2020 and said the best moment of his career was to play in the World Cup Final with Argentina.

“In the European Championship I will support Italy,” he told Tuttomercatoweb. “They are one of the national teams I like the most. It’s a country with a lot of great players.”

The former Lazio player played for Argentina in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and was in the starting line-up when Argentina lost 1-0 to Germany in the Final of the tournament.

The 34-year-old came to Lazio in 2013 and moved to Milan four years later. He has earned an Italian citizenship after his spell in Italy, where he has played 160 matches in Serie A so far.

“There are lots of [good] moments,” he said. “Maybe arriving in Italy and going to Milan [could be described as the best]. It’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

“But getting to play in a World Cup Final is the most important memory. I will carry that with me forever.”

Biglia spoke to TMW when he attended the Junior TIM Cup event and said it was nice to be an example for the children looking up to the footballers.

“I started playing football at 4, my brother took me. He was an example to me, and I followed him,” Biglia added. “To be here is beautiful, life is not football but outside of football.

“We are normal people and finding children who look at us like this, that’s special.”
