Verratti: 'Azzurri getting clinical'

Marco Verratti believes Italy are becoming “more clinical” after qualifying for Euro 2016.

The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder provided a splendid assist for Eder in a 3-1 victory away to Azerbaijan on Saturday.

“We are still unbeaten in our group and that is a big advantage to have,” Verratti told Sky Sport Italia.

“We’re getting more clinical. When we need to defend, we can do that. It’s a good quality for a team.”

The Azzurri need a point against Norway in Rome on Tuesday to secure top spot in the group.

However, the Scandinavians will only be sure of qualification ahead of Croatia with a victory.

Italy are unbeaten in 49 qualifiers between Euros and World Cups.
