‘Wow’, ‘Phenomenal’, ‘MOTM’ – Many fans blown away by Chelsea player after int’l display

Italy beat Poland 1-0 last night in their UEFA Nations League game and many fans thought Chelsea’s Jorginho was the best player on the pitch.

It wasn’t an easy win for the Azzurri – they had to wait until the 92nd minute for the winner, but Jorginho, playing at the heart of the Italy midfield, put on a masterclass.

Cristiano Biraghi secured the three points from close range in injury time, assisted by the fantastically-named Kevin Lasagna.

Here are the best reactions after last night’s game on Twitter:

OPINION

Chelsea bought Jorginho for £51million this summer from Napoli, and it looks like he was worth every penny. He’s slowly been putting on a passing masterclass at Chelsea, running a bit under the radar until he broke the Premier League record for most passes in a game – 180 against Man City in their Premier League game.

He was the best player on the pitch last night as well, although Italy were far from their best. It was a much-needed win though, which puts them second in their group, two points behind Portugal who have enjoyed the perfect start.

Italy play Portugal next on Wednesday night and could go top with a win. Chelsea fans will be hoping Jorginho steals the show again but, more importantly, comes through the 90 minutes unscathed and ready for their huge game against Man United in the early kick-off on Saturday.
