We are as good as Spain, says Italy coach

Jun 28 2013, 4:24am CDT | by

Fortaleza (Brazil), June 28 (IANS) Italy coach Cesare Prandelli said his team had proved they were on par with Spain after a 6-7 penalty shootout loss to the World Champions here.

Fortaleza (Brazil), June 28 — Italy coach Cesare Prandelli said his team had proved they were on par with Spain after a 6-7 penalty shootout loss to the World Champions here.

The Confederations Cup semifinal defeat Thursday came almost a year after Spain routed the Azzurri 4-0 in the Euro 2012 final, reports Xinhua.

"It is clear that there is no longer a gap between the teams. I am proud of my players. Today we showed Italy's soul. We haven't always been able to play this way and it's important now that we maintain this form. We will leave the tournament knowing that we can have great results in the future," Prandelli said.

Italy will Sunday play off for third place against Uruguay in Salvador. Prandelli criticised the tournament's fixturing saying his team would not have enough time to recover.

"I think the schedule needs to be revised. I don't even know if we are going to train before the match against Uruguay. We have a day less to prepare and then a long trip ahead," Prandelli said.

During an interview with Radio Kiss Kiss, Manuel El Shaa ...

Inter deal for Cardiff City star held up

Jul 24 2014 11:06am CDT | Source: forzitalianfootball

The deal to take Cardiff City midfielder Gary Medel to Inter is being held up by a disagreement about the amount of time the fee will be paid over. The Nerazzurri have reportedly already agreed a €7 million fee plus add-ons with the Bluebirds to take the 26-year-old to the San Siro. Sky Sport Italia suggests that the deal has not yet been completed because Inter want to pay the fee spread across over three years, while Cardiff would prefer this to over two years. Inter however are believed to ...

Jul 18 2014 5:10am CDT | Source: forzitalianfootball

New Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has moved to reassure star midfielder Andrea Pirlo of his future at the club.
