Suarez: Italy have a lot of quality

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has insisted that even without Mario Balotelli, Italy are still a dangerous side.

The South America champions face the Azzurri in the Confederations Cup third-place play-off on Sunday.

And the Liverpool forward has claimed that Cesare Prandelli's men have 'a lot of quality'.

“Italy play like a typical Italian team,” he told Globoesporte. “They like to use the space that the opponents leave them.

“Even without Balotelli they are dangerous. They have a lot of quality players like Giovinco.

“We will have to take our chances because they can punish us.”
