Spain and Italy are squaring off in an international friendly on Wednesday.
“The games against Italy are always beautiful and special,” Spain midfielder Andres Iniesta said, via ESPN FC. “We expect an intense game as usual against them because Italy are one of the top national teams.”
“We will try to attack Spain, as we did in the Confederations Cup, and force the world champions to defend themselves,” Azzurri coach Cesare Prandelli said. “But we expect a difficult game against a team that likes to control possession.
“I always say that if we are no longer the best, we can still beat the best.”
