Italy Head Coach Cesare Prandelli delighted with Brazilian support
Italy Head Coach Cesare Prandelli is delighted with the support the Azzurri have received since arriving in Brazil.
The four times FIFA World Cup winners beat Brasileirão side Fluminense 5-3 on Sunday and Prandelli believes they way his side approached that game has found favour with the local support.
“It’s a very pleasing thing, we didn’t think it would be like that,” he said, as reported by Football Italia. “In my opinion it was because they saw a team who always try to play.
“It is proven that when a team shows it wants to play football, it goes appreciated everywhere in the world.”
Italy kick off their 2014 FIFA World Cup campaign against England in Manaus on Saturday.
