Italy boss Cesare Prandelli is eagerly anticipating the August friendly against Spain in order to understand the true strength of his side.
The Azzurri take on the Republic of Ireland in a test this evening, but the Coach is looking forward to the August 10 match against the European and world champions.
"I can't wait to play the glamour friendlies," the former Fiorentina tactician told RAI Sport on Tuesday.
"They are the kind of tests that can allow us to take a leap in quality that I expect and give my side a true dimension."
