As Italy once again flattered to deceive following a lacklustre 1-1 draw with New Zealand, Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi urged the world champions to improve if they are to stand any chances of progressing to the second round.
Of course they need to improve. With such an easy group they are struggling to qualify for the next round, that's not the performance of the "world champions".
I haven't been able to show a good performance so far, i hope they qualify as it would be devastating for them to be out in the first round.
Yeah, it would certainly be very devastating for them.
they really do. IT's sad to see good teams not performing.
Don't want them to fail getting to at least the next round, but they really need to step up
Italy wont get far haha.
Italy need to setp there game up a fact is that there in between of a phase that they get young players in but they have also old players in(expirenced) but they havent got anyone in the middle. Like they did in 2006
