By Football Italian staffItalia staffOn Sunday night, the first leg of the World Cup was played, and the Italian coach Massimiliani Allegri had a difficult decision to make.
With the host nation Italy losing 2-0 to Costa Rica, he had to decide whether to play it in Turin or the San Paolo stadium in Turino, which is only a few hundred metres away from the training ground.
But when the game started, he decided to play the game in Turini, in which the home side was only two points ahead of the opposition, and decided to leave it at Turin.
The game itself was a total mess, with the home team going ahead 2-1 after only 10 minutes, with a great chance to tie the game after the first 45 minutes.
But the Italians were not able to get anything close to the lead, which was the result of an absolutely atrocious defensive display from the home fans.
A couple of minutes later, the referee made a mistake, giving a penalty for a handball in the box, and Italy were awarded a free kick in Turincana, which forced Costa Rica to concede the goal.
A little while later, Andrea Pirlo scored for the home crowd to send the game into extra time, with Gianluigi Buffon scoring a late equaliser.
Milan manager Massimiliana Allegri has had a tough time adjusting to the World Cups.
In fact, Allegri is not even the best-known coach in Italy.
The former Inter coach has managed only five games at the club, with three of those losses coming in the first half of the season.
He also has only one win in eight league games, which means he is still very far from winning over the hearts of the fans.
However, Allegrisos decision not to play in Turins stadium has not only affected his team, but also his image as the best coach in the world.
Allegri has a history of not making good decisions, and his team have had many bad results in his three years in charge.
The first of these came in the 2015/16 Serie A season, when the team went into the Champions League quarter-finals after a 1-0 defeat to Juventus.
Allegri managed to retain his job only after a 5-1 defeat at Sampdoria in the league.
Then there was the incident during a friendly against Real Madrid in June 2016, where Allegri used a flare gun to ignite a flare at the team bus.
The incident came after Allegri was booed for not having the proper fire extinguisher on the bus, as he was about to leave.
Allegria was suspended for two games and was banned from all sporting activities for the next three years.
Now, with Allegri facing yet another suspension for a bad gesture, it seems the coach might have had to make the right decision to play away from home, after all.
