Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro remains confident the Azzurri will deliver when it matters despite a 1-0 defeat to Spain in Wednesday´s international friendly.

It was Cannavaro who was at fault for the only goal of the game in Elche. His poor clearance allowed Valencia striker David Villa to fire home the winner against the world champions with 13 minutes to go.

"This defeat hurts because when you create chances and you do not score it is a pity," said Cannavaro.
