Capello: 'Italy should play 9-1'
Fabio Capello believes Italy “could have a great Euro 2016,” but he’d choose a “9-1 formation with everyone working hard.”
The former England manager spoke at the Football Leader get-together about the Azzurri’s campaign in France this summer.
“Italy could have a great Euro 2016, even if the fact some players are out of action will force Antonio Conte to find new solutions.
“The Juventus players will manage to transmit their winning mentality to the rest of the team. The first match will be fundamental, as Italy must reach it in good physical shape.”
Conte seems set for the 3-5-2 system, so which would Capello use?
“9-1, in the sense that there needs to be a striker and everyone else must work hard and help each other out.”
