“Without Mario, we need to work more at the collective level,” said Cesare Prandelli. We have players with different characteristics, but the spirit is to make the team even more compact. “

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) previously announced in the night of Sunday to Monday that the Ghanaian of origin declared withdrawal for the semi-final against Spain on Thursday due to a tear in his left thigh.
