partire in sordina e venire fuori alla distanza
Hello everybody,

that's the first time I've posted a question on this website...I'm very confident you'll be able to sort my doubt out.
It comes to an idiomatic expression which is mainly used in sports; I need it for football, but of course it could fit into other contexts.
The Italian sentence would be like "la squadra è partita in sordina in questo Europeo ma poi è venuta fuori alla distanza" meaning that they set off on the wrong foot in this Euro Cup but then they managed to get back into their stride and start back winning. That would be my attempt but I'm looking for something more idiomatic.
Thanks for your help.
