Italy wary of England's Liverpool stars

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini is wary of England's Liverpool contingent.

Steven Gerrard, Glen Johnson, Jordan Henderson, Danny Sturridge and Raheem Sterling could all start against Italy on Saturday.

"They have brought a group on, a Liverpool contingent, who have done very well," said Chiellini.

"Maybe as individuals they have changed more compared to us, but their way of playing remains the same.

"It will be a tough match. Certainly, the weather factor will also be very important. Everyone has been scared of Manaus so we are curious to see what it's like to play there.

"We will be ready. As soon as we finished against Luxembourg we couldn't wait to get to Brazil and breathe the World Cup air."
