Biglia: Italy a tough test

Lazio’s Lucas Biglia will be part of the Argentina squad to face Italy this week, and the midfielder has admitted it will be ‘a great challenge’.

The South Americans play Cesare Prandelli’s men in Rome on Wednesday, and the 27-year-old has conceded it will be a tough test.

“It’s going to be quite a challenge,” he told TYC Sports. “It’s the first time facing a world power like Italy.

“We’re going to meet a strong team, fresh from success in the Confederations Cup.

“I haven’t talked about it much with my Lazio teammates because I don’t speak Italian that well.

“But I know they all respect Argentine players.”
