Fabio Capello has advised Italy that they will need to use the ball well if they are to progress at next year’s World Cup.
The Russia Coach saw the Italians drawn alongside Uruguay, England and Costa Rica but will be forced to play all their group games in the north of Brazil, where the heat and humidity is expected to play an important factor.
“Italy are playing in the north. They have to use the ball well, because as has been said before – the ball does not sweat,” he told Sky Sport Italia, before commenting on Russia’s group with Korea Republic, Belgium and Algeria.
“No game is easy at the World Cup. But Korea and Belgium worry me because of their speed,” warned Capello.
