Verratti: 'Disappointment shows ambition'

Marco Verratti maintains Italy leaving Poland disappointed after a goalless draw ‘shows the level we have reached and the ambition we are going for.’

The Azzurri had numerous chances in Gdansk, but only picked up a point in their third Nations League match.

“It was tough to play on this surface. We created a lot of chances, so did Poland. Hopefully we can do better next time and convert our opportunities,” the PSG midfielder told RAI Sport.

“It’s only right that we leave this game unsatisfied, because it shows the level we have reached and the ambition we are going for. Despite being in Poland, a tough place to play, we still used our approach and attacked to the end.”

They have five points from three Nations League games and host the Netherlands on Wednesday evening.

The Dutch and Poland both have four points, while Bosnia-Herzegovina are on two.

“Every game can be decisive. We know that Holland are the side that we are basically fighting it out with for first place, we have this game on home turf and will try to make the most of it to consolidate the top spot.”
