Italy will play Spain at Vicente Calderon on March 5, despite Cesare Prandelli reportedly keen to call the match off.
Rumours surfaced earlier on Friday that the Coach didn’t want to play La Roja in the friendly as the pair had already faced each other three times in three years.
However, the Spanish Football Federation have confirmed on their official website that the match will go ahead as scheduled with both side’s preparing for this summer’s World Cup.
