Giuseppe Rossi was happy to act as Italy captain for the first time in his career, but concedes the performance was disappointing.
The Villarreal starlet was chosen as captain because he was the one with the most caps in the starting XI, even though it was only his 18th.
“It was emotional to wear the captain's armband. I played 45 minutes and am happy enough with the result. We can all go home and focus on our clubs now,” he said.
