What the coaches say
Italy coach Roberto Mancini: “We can improve as a young team; We had a lot of chances when we had situations like Poland and Netherlands and we only scored one goal. We will try to win this group and make it to the final. The Netherlands is a strong team with many talented young people. They evolve every game. It will be a good game, a difficult game. Two years ago we started looking for a few young players. The group is so united now, we just need to play these types of games to keep improving. ”
Frank de Boer, Dutch coach : “We didn't play well against the Bosniaks, but we created five good chances. We trained for two scenarios. The group has to decide which one to use on the field. It won't work, we can quickly switch to plan B. In any case, you will see something different from the game at home. I am very positive. ”
