Fans of Italian football nostalgia were treated to quite the sight on Saturday evening as Roberto Mancini and Gianluca Vialli embraced in celebration as Italy beat Austria 2-1 to reach the quarter-finals of Euro 2020 at Wembley.
Photos of their hug overwhelmed social media, and many even dug a little deeper to bring pictures of ‘i gemelli del gol‘ – the goal twins – doing similarly in their Sampdoria days.

Sampdoria’s own accounts weren’t willing to pass up on the moment, and took the opportunity to reminisce about past times, sharing the photo onto their Instagram account.
