Fiorentina ace Rossi laughs off Zola, Baggio comparison

Fiorentina striker Giuseppe Rossi has welcomed praise from Italy coach Cesare Prandelli.

Rossi was delighted to be on the mark in Italy's 2-2 draw with Nigeria.

Prandelli said Rossi was a hybrid between Roberto Baggio and Gianfranco Zola.

"I have a long, long way to go! I remember the 1994 World Cup well, though I was seven years old. Who do I base myself on more? I have no idea."
