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."
