Fabio Cannavaro predicts a draw between Italy and England, but the Azzurri “have to focus on winning the World Cup.”
The 2006 victor is in Brazil to work as a television pundit for ITV and was interviewed by Sky Sport Italia ahead of tonight’s game.
“I predict a draw, hopefully 1-1 so we’ll see a few goals,” said the ex-Juventus and Real Madrid man.
Andrea Pirlo and Cesare Prandelli have said the Azzurri are targeting the Final and Cannavaro agrees.
“It’s only right we have to focus on winning the World Cup, as we are Italy and it is our responsibility. Don’t forget we are behind only Brazil in terms of World Cups won.
“I hope Pirlo can be the stand-out player, as he’s coming off a wonderful season and a good performance in Brazil can boost his Ballon d’Or chances.”
