Giorgio Chiellini broke all records in this Euro Cup, starting as a starter in the Italian National Team. It is that the defender became the outfield player with the most games in the Squadra Azzurra in continental competition. If the eternal captain was missing something, it was to continue breaking records at 36, when many already considered him retired at this point, or at least playing in leagues and less demanding tournaments.
With his presence in the initial defensive line, by the second date of the contest, the Juventus player reached his 14th meeting in the tournament of nations and climbed to the top of the historical table of the Azzurri.
From this appearance against the Swiss, the experienced footballer, 36, surpassed Antonio Cassano, Alessandro Del Piero and Paolo Maldini, all with 13 appearances. However, the one who remains as a pursuer (13) and with whom, precisely, he shared behind on the day, is Leonardo Bonucci, the only one of the closest in activity.
