Prandelli targets attacking approach

Italy boss Cesare Prandelli has vowed to make the side stronger and more entertaining as they look to bounce back from their World Cup disappointment.

Italy are currently in a transitional phase, with many of the 2006 World Cup winners failing to offer a convincing defence of their trophy in 2010, and Prandelli is looking to rebuild the side.

The Azzurri came close to embarrassment in Prandelli's first competitive game as they scraped past Estonia 2-1 but, ahead of the home match against Faroe Islands on Tuesday, he is promising a more attacking outlook.

"In my view, this Nazionale can give a lot more and over time it will also become an entertaining team to watch," he said.

"I am convinced that Andrea Pirlo, Riccardo Montolivo and Daniele De Rossi can guarantee both quality and quantity. If one of the three is locked down, the other two have to push up into the space - otherwise, with just Antonio Cassano doing that, it becomes difficult.

"I am certain that as time goes on they'll understand these movements. The basic play is for three strikers, but it all depends on Cassano. He must to all intents and purposes become a support striker. If he understands those movements, he can become extraordinary."
