Italians sometimes get a bad rap for their supposed win-at-all-costs mentality but this footage shows that can be an unfair stereotype. It’s from the Coppa Italia Dilettanti (which translates as the slightly less glamorous sounding Italian Amateur Cup). Unione Sportiva Termoli are awarded a pretty harsh penalty against rivals Torres after Vittorio Esposito flings himself over in the box. The player steps up to take it and, suddenly, his conscience comes into play.
