The Azzurrini have already booked their place in the semi-finals with wins over England and Israel, which means they just need a draw this evening to ensure top spot.

“We have maximum respect for all of our opponents, even if we are already in the final four,” Mangia noted.

“We’ll take to the field looking to play the game we want to. That’s why I’ll select those who are physically at their best.

“We must always remember that we have to honour the shirt we wear every time we play.”

Mangia gave little away with regards to his starting XI, apart from confirming that Chievo’s Alberto Paloschi will start in attack.

Italy probable line-up: Bardi; Donati, Caldirola, Regini, Biraghi; Rossi, Verratti, Florenzi; Saponara, Paloschi, Borini.
