Spain coach Vincente del Bosque has backed Cesare Prandelli's 'code of ethics' for Italy's squad.

Prandelli dropped AS Roma midfielder Daniele de Rossi from his squad after his on-field clash with Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi on the weekend.

"He has made the right decision to leave him out," Del Bosque told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We could do with adopting a code of ethics ourselves in Spain."
