Italy not arrogant, says Juve star

Jun 13 2013, 2:20am CDT | by

Rio de Janeiro, June 13 (IANS) Defender Giorgio Chiellini has denied claims that Italy has been afflicted by arrogance as they prepare for their Confederations Cup debut against Mexico, Sunday.

Rio de Janeiro, June 13 — Defender Giorgio Chiellini has denied claims that Italy has been afflicted by arrogance as they prepare for their Confederations Cup debut against Mexico, Sunday.

Veteran Azzurri goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon had accused his teammates of having an "ounce of superficiality and arrogance" during the match against Caribbean minnows Haiti, reports Xinhua.

Buffon made the suggestion following Italy's shock 2-2 friendly draw with Haiti in Rio de Janeiro, Tuesday.

"Buffon is our captain and leader. We respect everything he says but maybe he made those comments in the heat of the moment," Buffon's Juventus teammate Chiellini said on Wednesday.

"We know what we are capable of and we have complete confidence in our team. It's our job now to make sure that we recover and are ready for Sunday's match."

Italy's clash at the Maracana stadium Sunday will be followed by duels against Japan June 19 and hosts Brazil three days later. The top two teams from each group will play off for a place in the final June 30.

Antonio Di Natale: Better than a 7-Eleven Burrito

Nov 3 2014 4:30am CST | Source: forzitalianfootball

Give Antonio Di Natale the ball and he will score within seconds. 23 seconds, to be precise. In Sunday’s match against Genoa, Di Natale did just that. In what is the fastest occurring goal of the season thus far, Di Natale put Udinese up over Genoa in the 23rd second of the match. Unfortunately, Udinese went on to lose 4–2 at the Stadio Friuli — their first loss at home all season — but for a few seconds of that match, the ...
