The Sunderland midfielder was impressive in the win over Belgium.
The Italians kicked off their Euro 2016 campaign on Monday as they took on Belgium in a clash of Group E’s heavyweights.
It proved to be a fine evening for Antonio Conte’s side as they ran out 2-0 winners in a highly impressive performance.
One of their key men was Giaccherini as he scored the opening goal of the game following slack defending from the Belgian back line.
Indeed, he was impressive throughout and as shown by WhoScored he posted a number of impressive stats throughout the game.
|Team||Match||Touches||Total Pass||Accurate Pass||Passing Accuracy||Total Tackle||Won Tackle|
|Italy||Belgium vs Italy||56||32||26||81%||3||2|
He managed 56 touches in total, the joint third most of any Italian player in the game.
His passing was solid as he posted 32 passes, with 26 of those proving to be successful, enjoying an overall success rate of 81%.
Defensively he also played his part, managing three tackles in total, the second most of any Italy player, winning two of those, again the joint second highest of the Italian players.
An impressive display for Giaccherini then, who Sunderland may be tempted to try to give a second chance to at the Stadium of Light this summer.
