Graziano Pelle’s girlfriend Vicky Vargas ‘knew’ her Italian stallion would miss his penalty during the comedic shoot-out with Germany on Saturday night.
Pelle’s miss came at a crucial time during the shoot-out, with the Southampton striker having the chance to put his side 3-1 ahead thanks for misses from both Thomas Muller and Mesut Ozil had left the Germans trailing the Azzurri.
While Simone Zaza will take a lot of the heat for his calamitous run-up and awful miss (queue Benny Hill), Pelle can be just much to blame for the Italian’s and Antonio Conte’s exit from Euro 2016.
As the former PSV man attempted his failed Panenka style penalty, girlfriend Vicky Vargas seemingly saw it coming as she failed to look shocked at his miss and mouthed the words ‘I knew it’ following Manuel Neuer’s save.
Maybe Mystic Meg should let him know next time if she ‘knew’ if he was going to miss…
