Here are the declarations of Italy and Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo courtesy of

Pirlo saying, “We can win the World Cup. I always play to win, and going beyond the group stage won’t be enough for me. Italy have all they need to go all the way:” This is what Andrea Pirlo had to say during today’s press conference. Pirlo seems to have no doubts about their first opponents though: “We have always delivered well against England. We have started studying them: they are a younger team now, very dynamic.”

Will Pirlo and Verratti play together during Italy’s World Cup opening match? “No problem. If two players are good enough to play at this level, they can always play together. We tested a solution with men in front of the defence and two play makers – we liked it and I am sure we can deliver. We work so that we can improve every day. My role has changed a bit compared to what it was, but we have different options, the main thing is to play at our best.”

What about the opponents? “Brazil and Spain are favourites. A World Cup can always throw up surprises, but Spain have all they need to defend their title: They are a massive team with some terrific match winners within their side.” Juventus officially extended Pirlo’s contract until 2016 today: “I decided to continue with Juventus because I feel well and we have been winning titles. We have done well in the league, but we have other goals too.”
