Prandelli desperate for Croatia win

Published Add your comment

Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has labelled Thursday's game against Croatia as "crucial" to their hopes of advancing past the group stages of the European Championship.

The Azzurri claimed a 1-1 draw with holders Spain in their Group C opener and next take on a Croatia side that beat the Republic of Ireland 3-1.

"The game against Croatia will be the crucial game of the group," Prandelli said. "I expect a very complicated game. Our aim is to win because I reiterate that this is a key match."
