Di Biagio wants 'a nice performance'

Italy Under-21 boss Luigi Di Biagio has asked his players for ‘a nice performance, maybe even a victory’ tomorrow.

The Azzurini host Montenegro in a friendly match at Castel di Sangro on Wednesday evening, and the tactician has admitted that a win is not the most important thing – but a nice habit to get in to.

“I want the boys to give me the gift of a good performance,” he told a Press conference. “Maybe even a victory.

“I wanted to face Montenegro because they play a very similar style to Serbia [who they face in European Championship qualification].

“There aren’t really any friendlies in international football, but these occasions are useful to experiment a bit.”
