No one who follows Chelsea can be surprised that Jorginho was the man to take the final shot in the shoot-out against Spain in the Euro 2020 semi-final, with his ‘hop, skip & jump’ routine completely befuddling Unai Simon.
However, the most interesting outcome is that Chelsea fans are now convinced their star midfielder is worthy of Ballon d’Or recognition after packs of impressive displays for Italy in the European Championship plus helping Chelsea win the Champions League title last season.
Below are some fans reactions across different platforms;
kd_uoft: “Man as soon as Jorginho stepped up I knew it was over.”
thuili: “Another trophy at the bridge. Jorginho Ballon D’Or confirmed.”
mellvins059: “Thought Jorginho had an unimpactful game overall but to handle that pressure on the penalty like that… takes a very special player.”
Dawjman: “Such a bittersweet moment for a neutral Chelsea fan. So happy for Jorgi but so sad for Azpi.”
@AlexGoldberg_: “At this rate people will probably still debate Jorginho’s footballing ability 2,000 years from now, but his mentality just can’t be up for discussion. It’s top, top class.”
@CFCPerikin: “Jorginho’s chances of winning the Ballon d’Or draws a step closer. You love to see.”
@CFCDaninho: “We have Kante, Jorginho, and Kovacic in our midfield. We don’t understand how lucky we are.”
