Two other winners (Seat 4 Klevignot and opposite Battery) were satisfied with the perfect formation of the Nations League, winning the Unipol Arena at the end of July and Ngapeth remains the best player in the event. Piacenza’s manager, Antoine Brizzard, fanning the balls in the control room, Benjamin Toniotti covering his back.
