“I’m happy because we played as a team, but it’s a shame not to have won because we deserved to. By the end our opponents had handed us control and they didn’t create any danger in the second period, we didn’t even let them have a single shot on goal. We still have to improve, however. What happened to [Gianluigi] Buffon? He had a back problem. We’ll wait for the doctors to say how serious the injury is and how long he’ll be out.”
Marcello Lippi, Italy coach
