Italy coach Prandelli to pair El Shaarawy, Balotelli against Holland

Italy coach Cesare Prandelli will start with AC Milan's new-look attack against Holland tonight.

Stephan El Shaarawy and Mario Balotelli have both Milan and Azzurri fans excited about the future.

“I do not remember seeing a second striker like El Shaarawy,” Prandelli told a Press conference. “Someone who contributes so much to the team defensively.

“Balotelli meanwhile must become our central focus.

“He is not a striker in the old-fashioned sense – but a modern forward who can, and must continue, to score every time he gets a chance.”
