Reflecting on Italy's scratchy 2-0 defeat of Georgia, Toni said: âIn these last few games, in which the team hasnât done very well, the criticism has been far more vague and widespread than singling out an individual. When I was there, it was easier to just criticise me.â
âMarcello Lippi knows what I can give to the team. He has always said I should focus on getting back to full fitness. He knows me and how I fit into the squad and locker room.
âI just have to be on form again, then I think Iâll be back in the Azzurri side.â
