Prandelli 'optimistic' about Brazil 2014

Italian National Team boss Cesare Prandelli has admitted he is 'pretty optimistic' about the Azzurri's chances at next year's World Cup.

Michel Platini claimed earlier this week that Italy could win in Brazil next summer, and the Coach has insisted that he is excited about some of his side's young players.

“Platini said we can win? I'm grateful for that,” he told Rai Sport. “But all I'm thinking about at the moment I qualification.

“We have at least five or six really interesting players – both for the technical values and their spirit when wearing the National Team jersey.

“I'm pretty optimistic.”
