The Azzurri chief suggests that he could include all six attackers in the final selection for the European tournament; extols them as modern aggressors with a lot of quality.
Cesare Prandelli has stated that he may be tempted to take all the strikers from his preliminary selection for the upcoming Euros, and insists that he could drop a defender from the final squad in order to make some space.
The Azzurri chief is currently training his 32-man preliminary squad, and was expected to axe one of the six strikers for his final 23-man team for the Euro 2012. However, the attackers have impressed the tactician, leading him
to declare that they all deserve to be part of the team.
Prandelli stated that he is impressed by all the forwards in the preliminary selection, and insisted that all six of them deserve to be a part of the final Italy squad for the European tournament.
The Azzurri manager stated that the aggressors have not only exhibited quality and movement, but have also proved that they can work well with the rest of the team. The former Fiorentina tactician extolled the modern style of the
attackers, and stated that he will sacrifice a defender if he chooses to keep all of his forwards.
While talking to the press, the 54-year-old said:
“All six of the attackers deserve to be here. They’ve really impressed me. They have quality, movement, they know how to attack and integrate with the rest of the team. They are modern attackers. If I keep all six in the squad
then I’ll sacrifice a defender.”
The eulogized attacking line-up consists of AC Milan’s Antonio Cassano, Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli, Parma’s Sebastian Giovinco, AS Roma’s Fabio Borini, Antonio Di Natale of Udinese and Siena’s Mattia Destro.
Prandelli stated that he will announce his final 23-man squad on Monday afternoon. The Azzurri coach insisted that the he had a few doubts about the youngsters in his attack, but stated that players like Destro have been a revelation
The former Viola manager also stressed that he has no doubts about the fitness of Antonio Cassano, and insisted that the AC Milan striker’s spirit and love for the Azzurri jersey is exemplary.
