Candreva: “Three key points for our season”

A goal against his former club from the spot against a renowned penalty-saving expert in Samir Handanovic saw Antonio Candreva notch his second Samp goal to help the team come out on top at the Marassi. “It’s an important win for our season,” explained the midfielder. “We’ve beaten one of the top sides in the league. We were compact, showed humility and hurt a fantastic team.”

Candreva’s celebration after making it 1-0 was to place the ball under his shirt, which he went on to explain in his post-match interview: “I dedicated it to my wife Allegra. Our second son is due in the next few days and I wanted to celebrate for her and for him. I’m very pleased for the team and the three points, which give us a big boost. We must always perform like we did today game after game. We can take on anyone.”
