Casillas: Azzurri often find a way

Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas has praised opponents Italy ahead of the friendly between the teams on Wednesday.

The Real Madrid shot-stopper thinks the Azzurri’s ability to often win when not playing well will make them a dangerous opponent both tomorrow and in this summer’s World Cup.

“The Italian national team always knows how to keep on coming back,” Casillas told Spanish television.

“They are a historic team who, regardless of the quality of their performance, often manage to win.

“Italy are also a team ready to change a lot of things and have a lot of surprises up their sleeve.”
