Napoli's Maggio: Italy must be wary of Armenia

Napoli midfielder Christian Maggio says Italy must be wary facing World Cup qualifying opponents Armenia.

Maggio is expected to start the game.

"There is a good chance that I'll play and the whole team is ready to take part in a fierce and difficult encounter," he said from the Azzurri's Coverciano training base.

"We still don't know too much about Armenia, but we will as there is still plenty of time before the match.

"A few days ago I spoke to my Napoli teammate Marek Hamsik who faced them last year. He told me that they don't have great individual qualities, but they are a side who work very hard.

"We'll prepare properly for the game on Thursday."
