INJURED Leonardo Spinazzola showed his support for Italy against Spain by singing the national anthem at home in heartwarming scenes with son Mattia.
The Roma left-back, 28, had been one of Euro 2020’s best performers, catching the imagination with some lung-bursting displays on the wing.
However, disaster struck when Spinazzola suffered a horror injury in Italy’s quarter-final win over Belgium.
The defender ruptured his Achilles tendon and looked to be in tears as he was carried off the pitch on a stretcher.
Spinazzola has since undergone surgery on the damaged area.
And he will be out for at least six months, dealing a huge blow to new Roma boss Jose Mourinho.
But Spinazzola looked to be in great spirits on Tuesday night as he recuperated from surgery at home with his family.
A video on social media showed the superstar taking it easy on the couch while belting out Italy’s national anthem before the semi-final against Spain.
But Spinazzola was not signing alone as young son Mattia helped him along with the words.
The inspiring scenes are sure to boost Italy and Roma fans alike, with Spinazzola appearing to be making good progress already.
In the meantime, new gaffer Mourinho is reportedly eyeing Real Madrid icon Marcelo as Spinazzola’s replacement this term.
Brazilian veteran Marcelo has just one year left on his contract.
But the defender looks set to play a role under new Real boss Carlo Ancelotti, who has named Marcelo as the club’s captain following Sergio Ramos’ exit.
