We must impose our game - Abate

Next Story

Italy defender Ignazio Abate is wary of England's wide boys ahead of Sunday's European Championship quarter-final.

All but one of England's five goals at Euro 2012 have come from corners or crosses and they are likely to test their opponents in similar fashion at Kiev's Olympic Stadium this weekend.

AC Milan left-back Abate could find himself up against Ashley Young if Italy play a four-man defence and he said: "England have quick players who find it easy to cross and have great attackers who are very strong. But, with serenity, we have to impose our game, even if we all have to suffer a bit together."
