Italian-American is definitely Italian today
Ex-Manchester United striker Giuseppe Rossi was Italy’s goalscoring hero last night as he bagged a brace to help the Azzurri come from a goal down to beat 10-man USA. That is the same USA where Rossi was born and spent the first 13 years of his life.
I have read some angry comments from some Americans this morning who see Rossi as a bit of a Judas figure, having turned down a US call-up prior to the 2006 World Cup. Others have been more circumspect and argued that since Rossi is clearly good enough to play for Italy, he would have been daft to settle for the USA.
Do you feel Rossi rage?
