(ANSA) - Duisburg, June 28 - Injured Italy stopper Alessandro Nesta hit back Wednesday at offensive jibes a German weekly published following the Azzurri's last-gasp World Cup win over Australia .

On Tuesday the online version of Der Spiegel featured a supposedly humorous opinion piece that described Italian men as "greasy", "parasitic", "cheats" and "mummy's boys" .

"We are a people of hard-workers," responded Nesta .

"Italians have taken their fashion and food all over the world. They criticize us for the way we are, but then they want to dress and eat like us".
