Italian Limburgers celebrate La Squadra Azzurra’s win

Not everyone in our region was left broken-hearted by the Belgian national football team’s defeat at the hands of Italy on Friday evening. In the Limburg city of Genk a sizable portion of the population is of Italian descent and they ensured that there was a party atmosphere after the final whistle.
