Juventus striker Iaquinta unhappy about Italy role

Juventus striker Vincenzo Iaquinta has complained over his role in Italy's line-up.

The Juventus star was placed on the left-hand side of Italy's attack for their 1-1 draw with Paraguay and struggled to make an impact until Marcello Lippi changed formation from a 4-2-3-1 to a 4-4-2.

“We put more pressure on the opponents when we played two centre-forwards,” Iaquinta said.

“For me, it was more difficult in the first half. Lippi tried to move me everywhere, but my natural role is to play up front, even if in a World Cup you are there to do everything.”
