Statements - Italy

Roberto Mancini (Coach)

"We are going to play our game, always respecting the team we are facing because we know how good they are. There are no easy games, as we have seen in this tournament. Belgium is undoubtedly one of the best teams in the world at the moment, but that doesn't change much because every match is difficult at this stage of the tournament."

"Every game makes you stronger if you know how to learn the important things. Against Austria we had to suffer more, but we had 26 shots on goal. They were difficult moments, but we won on merit."

Giorgio Chiellini

"We don't need to look for motivation for this kind of match, because the adrenaline will do everything as soon as we take the field. I think it will be a match between two great teams and it is likely that small details will make the difference. We have a lot of respect for Lukaku, because he had a great season at Inter and became a dominant player. But it's almost an insult to talk only about Lukaku when you see how many quality players Belgium has."

1:46 PM24 days ago

Statements - Belgium

Roberto Martínez (Coach)

"Italy will attack from the first second, they will be very structured and dynamic. Every player knows his role. The game against Portugal was a game that could have been played much later. Normally players don't play these physical and intense matches at this stage of the tournament. Luckily we had enough days to recover and prepare." 

"We respect Italy a lot, they are a great team, with great players. They have a lot of commitment, they press well, they defend as a team. I would highlight their way of playing, in a synchronized way. You can see Mancini's work. I like coaches who know tactics. You can see their work, their competitiveness.

Thorgan Hazard

"Italy will be the toughest opponent we have encountered so far. They are on a good winning streak and it will be a nice challenge for us to end it. Their style may suit us better than Portugal's. They are an attacking team, so we can take advantage of open spaces. They are an attacking team, so we can take advantage of the open spaces, but it won't be easy at all."

1:41 PM24 days ago

Key player - Italy

In the Italian team, the work of Ciro Immobile, initially in charge of the goals in the squad, is highlighted. He is a player with a great talent, which makes him one of the best in the world.

1:36 PM24 days ago

Key player - Belgium

In the Belgian team, the presence of Romelu Lukaku stands out, and he has been one of the most unbalanced players in the tournament. He is someone who not only scores goals, but also builds the game.

1:31 PM24 days ago

Italy, for a place in the top 4

Italy has proven to be one of the great revelations of the tournament. Roberto Mancini's team stood out in Group A, after a perfect score. They come to this match after having defeated their Austrian counterparts in a very difficult game, and will be playing for a place in the semifinals against the very difficult Belgian team with the aim of proving their favoritism.

1:21 PM24 days ago
