Wk13: Take nothing for granted

There's a revolution taking place in Serie A and anyone who assumes things are going their way will be left empty-handed, writes Susy Campanale.

Sweden international Albin Ekdal “expected Italy to be stronger, but everything could change” in the second leg of the World Cup play-off.

“We are certainly not the favourites to qualify, as we only won 1-0 and Italy will be a different team at San Siro,” Ekdal told TMW Radio.
