I’m Alessandro from Toronto, Canada. Growing up in an Italian household, I grew up with football from a young age with my families footballing allegiances divided between Italy’s biggest teams. Therefore I didn’t have a choice but to love football.
What is your favourite Copa90 video and why?
My favourite Copa90 video would have to be “This is Napoli”, despite being a Juventus supporter. For me, having everyone from one of the clubs star players (Insigne), to life long fans, this video perfectly captures what it means to be a football fan and a die hard supporter of your club.
What is the best football game you have seen and why?
The best match I have ever watched was Germany v Italy 2006 World Cup Semi-final. Although it was only the semi’s and the team went on to win the final, this match was one of the most intense matches I have ever seen. Not to mention I was in Italy at the time watching this game with my cousins so when Fabio Grosso curled home the winner past Lehman in extra time ecstasy took over. I do not remember a better feeling.
What is your favourite football snack?
I’m usually too tense during football matches, even if its not a club I support. So I guess my fingernails? Or pretzels, pretzels are good.
Who is your footballing idol?
There is only one Zlatan. The man who is a living Cinderella story.
