Italy is preparing for the start of their World Cup qualifying campaign. Italy looking to extend their 22-match unbeaten run when they face Northern Ireland on Thursday 25 March at the Ennio Tardini Stadium in Parma (17 wins and five draws). Italy is playing 3 games in 9 days including Northern Ireland, Bulgaria and Lithuania.

As Mancini says during the press conference, “The first match is the most difficult, we can’t afford to get it wrong. We know that you can’t get it wrong on the road to the World Cup, we need to do the best we can in these three matches.”

On Federico Chiesa, Mancini declared: “I’m happy because he’s made great strides forward in the last two months, but he can still improve. He’s very young and has now started to play at certain levels. In addition to being decisive due to his ability to beat his man, he’s capable of scoring a lot of goals.”
