Cannavaro so glad he plays in Spain

MILAN, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro said on Tuesday he was glad he now played in Spain given the violent scenes surrounding Italian soccer over the weekend. Atalanta's match with AC Milan was abandoned when fans tried to smash a pitchside barrier in response to the shooting of a Lazio fan by a policeman, while trouble broke out elsewhere. 'I believe I am lucky to play abroad,' the Real Madrid defender told reporters at Italy's training base in Florence. 'I play at Real Madrid, a club that has a perfect stadium, full of children, without violence. From the outside I realise the awful images Italian football gives itself. We cannot go on like this.' Despite the trouble, Italy are trying to concentrate on their most important match since lifting the World Cup in Berlin last year. Defeat in Scotland on Saturday would mean third-placed Italy, one point behind the Scots and two behind Group B leaders France, would have to win against the Faroes on Nov. 21 and hope Ukraine beat France at home that night to go through. 'For us it will be fundamental to win and we know we are able to do it. But Scotland have been a real surprise, they have beaten France twice,' he said.
