Italy coach Marcello Lippi was satisfied after their 0-0 draw against Cameroon last night.
"Bonucci and Cossu played with character and quality on their debuts. I also tested out some things with the other players. It was a very useful game," said Lippi.
"It was a very useful game, as we saw the lads I had called for the first time and of course Marco Borriello who'd already played for the Nazionale under Roberto Donadoni."
"I read the opinion polls, but they don't bother me."
