Leonardo Bonucci’s mistake from the penalty kick made me think that I can’t help but liking people who try very hard and fail.


Defeated sportsmen look like quasi-heroes who fall just one step short from their objective. History will forget them, or even worse: she will blame them. I won’t: I sympathize for those who dare to try and get close to the objective but not quite, either by luck or some other reasons.
