Holland’s Van Basten aware of Italy’s threat


Holland Coach Marco Van Basten said that he is aware of the threat World Champions Italy hold and he thinks that they can give his side some troubles in the opening match of the group of death. He remarked that both Italy and France have a better formidable squad than during the World Cup and this could lead to more troubles for the Dutch squad if they are able to pose some threat in order to qualify for the further rounds of the European Championship.

“I think that both Italy and France are much stronger than they were during World Cup 2006,” said Van Basten.

“Their teams are based around youth and experience and this is a massive advantage.”

“France have impressed me as they a more physical but Italy are not like they used to be when they used to defend.”

“Now, the Azzurri play more attacking football and they are more open to going forward rather than just staying at the back.”
