Ranocchia praises Craven Cottage

Andrea Ranocchia was full of praise for Craven Cottage after Italy’s draw with Nigeria there on Monday.

The defender is back in Milan after representing the Azzurri in west London earlier this week, where Cesare Prandelli’s team drew 2-2 with the African champions.

The 25-year-old though, was impressed with Fulham’s home ground.

“I thought we played a good game in London,” he told Inter Channel. “The stadium was beautiful as well.

“I really enjoyed it there. We played just a few metres from the fans, and it really created a bond with the supporters.

“I’m a bit tired after the travelling, but I can’t play on Sunday because I’m suspended, so that gives me a bit longer to recover.”
