Cannavaro blown away by Barca

Napoli captain Paolo Cannavaro has hailed Barcelona as "incredible" following last night's Nou Camp drubbing.

The European champions crushed the Azzurri 5-0 in a friendly which underlined Barca's ability to win and entertain.

"They play an incredible brand of football," defender Cannavaro conceded following the defeat.

"We now understand how great this team is, especially in their movement without the ball in their possession.

"We played against the very best team there is. I can say that there is an abyss between them and the rest of the world.

"It was an important test for us though, especially when you consider that we will be playing in the Champions League this season."
