Hamsik: 'I hope Italy win'

Napoli star Marek Hamsik is in the stands in Poznan for Italy-Croatia. “I hope and believe that Italy will win.”

The Slovak international was spotted in the stands surrounded by Italy fans ahead of today’s Euro 2012 match, kick-off at 17.00 UK time.

“I hope and believe that Italy will win,” he told

“I am here to cheer on the Azzurri and also to follow my teammate Christian Maggio.”

The pair play together at Napoli and Maggio again starts at wing-back.

There are considerably more Croatian supporters in Poznan than Italian, so it has the sensation of an away match.
